January’s Most Beautiful Church: St. Paul’s, Simcoe, Ont.



I believe St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Simcoe, Ont., is the most beautiful church you would ever want to attend. Its exterior is a picturesque, beautiful sight. The interior also excels in beauty each and every Sunday from the faces of the people who grace the sanctuary.

You are always greeted with a smile and handshake by our weekly greeters. The ushers are there as well to assist with your needs. We, at St. Paul’s are a family.

St. Paul’s has a membership of close to 300. A new addition was added a few years ago with a price tag of just over $821,000. It was paid off a year earlier than predicted. That shows dedication.


The congregation consists of various ages. We have dedicated Sunday school teachers, and loving people tend to the babies and toddlers in our nursery. There are also a number of church groups and committees.

New leaders joined us last year – Rev. Ian Shaw and his wife, Linda. We are blessed to have them lead us in the work of the Lord.

If you get an opportunity to visit Simcoe, please take a moment and visit with us. You’ll be warmly welcomed and I’m sure you will agree that St. Paul’s is a beautiful church.
