St Paul’s, Rhosesmor

St Paul’s Church is situated in the centre of Rhosesmor, a busy and quite extended village.

It is built of local limestone and was dedicated in 1874. This Church is a listed building with a single nave and a semi-circular sanctuary (apse) which is unique in the area.

There is a North facing vestry and South facing entrance porch (although you may notice that the original plan shows these the other way round)  . Oil heated, it has a pipe organ built by C Lloyd of Nottingham.

There is seating capacity for 130 which can be augmented by chairs in the open area in the North-west corner of the church.

The church building stands within a well kept, walled, churchyard and has a garden of remembrance and cemetery.

The Parish has a beneficial interest in the village hall which has been recently refurbished to very high standard with the help of grant funding. It is run by a local committee on which representatives of the Church PCC sit.  Sunday School group ‘Bright Stars’ meet in the hall.

St Paul’s church has a very active group of helpers to maintain the church.
