Who We Are
St. Paul’s on the Green offers a radical welcome to all in Norwalk, in greater Connecticut, and beyond. No matter who you are or where you are on your own faith journey, you are welcome here. We proclaim the Gospel promise of liberation in our preaching and are a congregation whose members are embodied in justice, hospitality, and love. We offer a safe space where you will hear an unfailing message of God’s outrageous and unconditional love for you.
We welcome, affirm, and include in every aspect of our church life persons from all walks of life. We invite all those who experience prejudice and oppression because of their identity and who have been profoundly hurt – even by the church – to join us and experience an environment of healing, reconciliation, sanctuary, empowerment and peace. We strive not only to talk the talk, but to walk the walk.
We are a diverse, affirming, inclusive parish with a rich history of outstanding worship, music, preaching and social action. We are fond of saying that while the Christian Church is over 2,000 years old, our thinking here is not–and we encourage you to visit soon, to experience our radical welcome from the church steps to the communion table!

We welcome all people
We extend God’s radical welcome to people of every race, economic status, sexual orientation or identity, belief, or gifts: not just through our doors, but to the Communion table.
We welcome the newcomer, the stranger, those unsure in their faith, and those who have suffered in the name of religion.

We take pride in our diversity, and promise all who enter our doors that they will be free to be who they are.
We offer healing prayer to those who suffer in mind, body, or spirit.
We confront the evils of social injustice in our outreach efforts and through our Race and Social Justice Coalition.
We cherish excellence in worship
Our worship is thoughtful, inclusive, modern, and inflected by traditions from across the globe and from centuries ago.
Our preaching challenges and informs us by unpacking ancient teachings for a modern age.
Beautiful and engaging music is at the heart of our worship and community at St. Paul’s.
