What To Expect

Welcome to St. Paul’s!  We are so pleased that you are interested in our church and we invite you to visit one of our two Sunday services so that we can meet you in person! 

What you can expect at either of our services:

  • A printed worship bulletin that clearly guides you through the service (when to stand, sit, etc.).  You will get these as you enter the sanctuary.

  • A ten-minute sermon that helps us apply Jesus’ teachings to daily life

  • Warm and friendly people in a transcendent, but not “stuffy,” style of worship

  • Respect for your right to entertain doubt or unbelief. Many of our members are married to non-Christians – i.e., persons of a different faith or no faith.  All people are welcome to attend St. Paul’s, regardless of their faith - or lack of it.

  • Communion is offered for all who love God and seek Christ

  • Complimentary coffee and treats following each service

  • Some folks worry about what they “should” wear to church.  People at St. Paul’s dress in a variety of ways for church (“business casual” might be the most common) but there really are no “shoulds.”  Please come as you are!

 

Our 10am service:

  • Approximately 60-70 minutes in length

  • Meets in the main sanctuary (enter via front door near intersection of Occidental and El Camino Real)

  • Features glorious music (you might hear anything from Bobby McFerrin to Benjamin Britten to Bach). See the music section for a full description of our various choirs, Choir School and historic pipe organ.

  • A healing station (in the side chapel during communion) is available for those who would like special anointing and prayers for healing

  • For families with children you will have several options:

    • You may worship with your children in the pews

    • Experienced childcare is available for 1-4 year olds until noon in the St. Paul’s Nursery School (Chapin Ave. entrance)

    • Prayground – these are child-centered worship experiences in or adjoining the sanctuary. You can join your kids for this experience, or drop them off until they rejoin you during the communion portion of the service.

      • 2-5-year-old Prayground – located near the front door of the church.  Enter the main door and turn immediately to your left to join this group.

      • Grades 1-5 are in the right-side chapel within the sanctuary. Here you can sit with your children and experience a blend of activities that complement and explain the ongoing service.

 

Our 8am service:

  • Approximately 45 minutes in length

  • Meets in the right-side chapel within the sanctuary

  • Is a smaller, quieter, more contemplative service of about 15-20 people

  • Does not offer childcare, children’s programs, choir or organ music

  • Features the same readings, prayers and sermon as the 10 a.m. service      

 

Practical Logistics:

  • We have a parking lot at the corner of Occidental Ave. and Chapin Ave.  There is also abundant free street parking on Sundays.

  • There is a ramp for wheelchairs at the main door to the church

  • Bathrooms are in the social hall (enter from Occidental Ave.)

  • We are a short walk to Burlingame Avenue - affording you a variety of opportunities for brunch or the weekly Farmer’s Market after church

St. Paul's is located at 415 El Camino Real in Burlingame, California.
