Church Overview

St Paul’s & St George’s Church, known as Ps & Gs,  has a fascinating past, but, even more importantly, a lively and relevant present. A remarkable church designed by Archibald Elliott, 1818, in perpendicular Gothic with octagonal corner turrets, pierced parapets and crocketted finials. Matching sanctuary added by Peddie & Kinnear, 1892. In 2008 Lee Boyd Architects fulfilled the Church’s project vision to make the building fit for a contemporary role and to sustain its use as a place of congregation for years to come.

The churches vision is that we are called to be whole life disciples, sharing the whole of the gospel, through churches of grace. As well as Sunday worship, our core activities are centred around whole life discipleship and social outreach. A wide variety of children’s and youth activities are also available.


Sundays: 10.00 am (with children’s groups), 12 noon (Liturgical Communion) and 7.00pm (worship service)
