- Thanksgiving and Remembering Service
December 15, 2021
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Held in the church foyer, this quiet and intimate service will be an opportunity to meditate on God’s goodness and unchanging nature. An opportunity for us to remember and thank God for loved ones we have lost.
We also wanted to acknowledge that many others will be finding this year painful for a variety of reasons. The Christmas season can be a difficult one for those who are hurting – carrying pain or loss of any kind, whilst people all around you are celebrating, can be quite confronting. We therefore encourage you to join us if a quieter, more contemplative Christmas service will serve you this year.
Music, prayers and time for silent reflection on God’s word will give you a safe space to process and mourn as you need to, in the company of others so you don’t feel alone.
Led by Wayne Tildsley and Ken Allen.

- Christmas in the Hills
December 15, 2021
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us online on Wednesday 15th December at 6:30pm for another special Live Stream version of Christmas in the Hills.
Whilst our 10th year will again look a little different, we encourage you to seize this as a chance to invite some family, neighbours and friends around for a BBQ, set up in front of your TV and join with others from all over the Hills as we celebrate the Christmas season.
Our stream will kick off at 6:30pm with some family friendly pre-show entertainment, then Carols by Candlelight will be bought to life by our orchestra and choir, concluding at 9pm.
Brought to you by our Major Sponsor Karen D’Angola – Hills Specialist Di JONES Real Estate, and proudly supporting our charities.
Our mission every year is to celebrate the wonderful birth of a Child in Bethlehem and allow us to come together as a community and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Opportunity will be given on the night to support our 2 charity partners, allowing them to continue their incredible work in our community in 2022.
We look forward to gathering back on site with you at Bella Vista Farm, (hopefully next year as we celebrate our 11th year!)
May the Joy of Christmas be yours forever:- “Let nothing you dismay; remember Christ our Saviour, Who was born on Christmas Day.”

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT THE DIFFERENT SERVICES?
Our CHRISTMAS EVE 5pm service is designed for families with children. This service will be geared towards engaging kids, with a fun Christmas Pantomime, during which we will sing well-loved carols, and hear about the real reason for the season.
Our CHRISTMAS EVE 7pm and 9pm services are contemporary in style, with our live worship band leading us in modern carol arrangements.
On CHRISTMAS DAY we will start our morning with a Traditional Prayer Book service at 7:30am, and then continue celebrating Christmas with our 9:30am service, which will be ideal for the whole family to come to.
HOW DO I GET THERE AND WHERE DO I PARK?
St Paul's is located at 421 Old Northern Rd in Castle Hill, in-between Oakhill College and the Anglicare Retirement Village. We have plenty of parking available including wheelchair friendly spots. When you drive in the driveway our friendly parking team will greet you and assist you to find a spot.
If you are traveling by public transport please visit https://transportnsw.info/ to look up bus timetables from your area.
WHERE DO I TAKE MY CHILDREN?
During all of our Christmas services, the kids are in church with us, there is no separate children's program running.
Our main church auditorium also has a Toddler's Room/Feeding Room with books, toys and changing facilities available to you.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
We would suggest getting here at least 15-20 minutes early for our Christmas services.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Something you already own and that you feel comfortable in! There is no formal dress code at St Paul's, no need to feel like you have to dress up - but you of course can put on your Sunday best if that is what you are happiest in! Most of our congregation wear smart casual attire, think what you would wear to a weekend BBQ with friends. If you are coming to our 5pm service, we are asking everyone to dress as Shepherds or Angels.
WHAT DOES ST PAUL'S BELIEVE?
We believe in God the Father, creator of heaven and earth; Jesus Christ the Son of God; and the Holy Spirit. Gen1:1; Matt 28:19
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried and, in body, rose again on the third day. 1 Cor 15:1-4
We believe that God loved the world so much that he sent his son Jesus to die on the cross to save us from our sins so that if we believe in him we may have eternal life with him. John 3:16
We believe the only way to have an eternal relationship with God is through Jesus. Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
We believe that the Bible (the Old and New Testament) is the ultimate rule and standard of faith given by the inspiration of God and containing all things necessary for salvation.
WHAT COVID REQUIREMENTS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF?
We ask that you practise good personal hygiene, and sanitise your hands on arrival – there will be hand sanitiser at all rego desks, entries and exits of the church, and on wall brackets around the site. Please socially distance where possible.
Do not attend church if you are feeling unwell and experiencing any symptoms.
On arrival you will need to check in via QR code.
Masks are required whilst inside the church buildings.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET IN TOUCH IF I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
