We are an Episcopal parish church in the Diocese of California, and members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.We follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and have a legacy of inclusion. We share God’s love for every human being, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
Welcome from our Rector, the Rev. Krista Fregoso
Welcome to St. Paul’s! Wherever you are on your faith journey, we welcome you. Whether online or in person, we invite you to join us, and to share our role in God’s dream of light and love. We are leaning into a vision of being a prayerful center for Walnut Creek today. We open our campus and offer space for support groups and various community meetings. We are providing affordable housing for those priced out of the area. We share our sacred space with two other worshiping communities. In all of this, we bring to everyday life our baptismal covenant, how as Christians, we are called to live out our faith: with firm commitment and a reliance on God’s help.
On Sundays at 7:30 am we have a traditional service held in our historic chapel. At 9:30 am there is a service in the large church with the St. Paul’s choir. Also in the Sanctuary at 11:00 am is a 40-minute interactive service for young children and their parents called Joyful Noise. (Joyful Noise is on summer break until September) On the first Sunday of every month we combine our Joyful Noise family service with our 9:30 am service for intergenerational worship.
Every Thursday at noon there is a Healing Service and Eucharist in the chapel.
