Our church logo

Our logo was redesigned in 2019 and can be interpreted through three lenses:

1. MAP

The shape and angle of the main cross that runs through the centre of the logo is directly taken from a map of the crossroads on Stroud Road, at which St Paul and St Stephen’s stands. The OS map symbol for a church can be seen in the top left quadrant of the cross, in the exact position in which our church can be found if the logo is viewed as a map. There are three lines down each of the four stretches of road, adding to the crossroads illustration and also representing the trinity – the God we worship is three in one; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2. COMMUNITY

The main cross shape shows that Jesus is at the centre of our church and community. In a lighter shade of green, four arrows point towards the centre, these symbolise inclusivity and welcome, inviting people from all walks of life to join us and as we look towards the empty cross. Viewed along with the four circles in darker green, these arrows become people with their arms raised in praise. This shows that we, as a church community, meet together to worship God, and also that we are openly welcome others to join us in that worship. One of the people appears to have a cross on their head, this could be viewed as Jesus standing amongst us as we worship

3. TRANSFORMATION

The colour green represents growth, renewal and new life. As a church, we want to encourage all people to come in their brokenness and be made new through Jesus Christ. Green is also the colour used to represent ‘ordinary time’ within the church year. We are a church that invites people of all types, in their ordinary, everyday lives to meet here with us, so that we can share and grow together as we make our spiritual journey through life.
