Brief History

St Paulinus Church is one of the oldest churches in the Borough of Bexley.

The earliest parts of the north nave date from c. 1100. A twin nave and chancel were added in the 14th Century, followed in the 15th Century by the tower and chapels. The vestry and south porch were added in the 16th Century.

In May 1952, the church was classified as Grade II* listed and as such is listed as on the English Heritage website.

The porch of the church is currently being refurbished with a new slope to enable easier wheelchair access. (September 2023 – current date)
