Facilities

Welcome to St. Paul’s! The following are a few highlights of our facility:

  • A large parking lot offers ample parking space for all those who use our facilities throughout the week

  • Softly lit by hanging lanterns, our sanctuary features a simple wooden cross suspended from a vaulted ceiling along with comfortable padded seating

  • Exterior ramps make each floor of the facility easily accessible and the indoor lift allows for safe movement internally from floor to floor

  • The Friendship Room was created for quiet meditation, or meeting room, or for small receptions, as it has a small kitchenette

  • The small gym has its own kitchen and can be used for meetings, rehearsals or receptions

  • Our large gym/auditorium (known as Watt Hall) is a bright and comfortable facility, ideal for hosting musical and stage shows, exercise classes, recreational activities and much more. The ceiling and cross beams have been painted to enhance visibility and high-efficiency lighting fixtures illuminate the interlocked panel flooring which is cushioned by a shock-absorbing under padding, providing comfort for athletes. New air circulation fans are quiet and acoustic panels on the upper walls provide enhanced audibility through a modern sound system.

  • Several small and medium sized rooms are available for gatherings of any size

  • The brightly lit nursery is a space for where little ones can be safely accommodated during Sunday service

  • Our library is always accessible on the honour system and is formally staffed on Sundays (see more information below!)

  • Two kitchens, folding tables and plenty of chairs are available for meetings or social functions

 

LIBRARY

The church library is a gem . It is always accessible on the honour system, and has someone in attendance on Sundays. There are books of all types ranging from toddlers to adults, and lots of videos.

In the biography section you will find Lawrence Hill's book 'Any Known Blood'. This book has a lot of information in it about Oakville. You will also find the biography of Mother Teresa.

There are many books in the worship section including The Noble Qur'an. With all the present day interest in Islam and Moslems this is probably a good insight into their thinking.

The Fiction section includes all the past and present books read by the Book Club. There are also several series including the Jan Karon series which are always a good read. We also have many books by Karen Kingsbury which are enjoyed by many members.

There is a large children's section which is enjoyed by the Tots and Us as well as the other children in the church. We are presently trying to enlarge the section for the older teens. One book which was recommended for young people is 'We are all welcome here' by Elizabeth Berg.

In the video section there are videos for everyone. The little ones enjoy the Veggie Tales series and Thomas the Tank Engine. We have many good family movies - come in and pick one, get out the popcorn and have family movie night.
