Jesus says: "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF SAINT PAUL'S, PARKEND
Henry Poole was a curate at Newland and he issued an appeal for
public aid towards the erection of a church and school-house in
Parkend. The appeal was successful and from these voluntary
funds St. Paul’s was built.
It was built on a piece of ground called
Mason’s Tump by Richard James in 1820-22 under the supervision
of Henry Poole who, before his ordination, had experience in
architecture in Bristol. The consecration of the church took place
on May 2nd, 1822
