Church of St Paul, Seaton Sluice


St. Paul's Church in Seaton Sluice was and consecrated in 1961. The building was originally the Village Hall, built in 1903 to commemorate Dr John Ochiltree for his work as a family physician, which was converted into the church. There had been an earlier Church of St Pauls - Rev. Edward Greenlaw, vicar of Earsdon, founded a mission church of St. Paul’s in 1886. This earlier church was located in the front part of the former village brewery, and the back part of the building had been used by the United Methodists since the 1850’s. It was very unusual at the time for two denominations to share the same building, they also shared the same congregation bell, which had been used in the earlier glass factory.[1]
