St Paulinus school and church have very close links and work together to develop and nurture the spiritual needs of the children and staff.
Fr Antony Lane, rector of St Paulinus leads worship in School most Tuesday’s and sits as ex-officio on the school governing body. He involves himself in the life of the school engaging in Christian learning and supporting both staff and students alike.

A class from the school attends church each Wednesday for 9.30am mass and full school worship is held in church for Easter, Christmas, harvest and other Christian festivals.
As part of the Churches together in Crayford, other Christian ministers from Crayford also join the school for worship on different occasions.
The church endeavours to cater for all in its “liberal catholic style”. Toddler church enables the young children and parents to join in worship, followed by refreshment in the church youth hall on Thursday mornings. Family worship is held once a month and Sunday school and crèche facilities are available on Sunday mornings during our main worship at 10am. Refreshments are held after most services for a time of fellowship.
