The ever popular St Paul's Quiz Night is back! At present, we are plenning a live event, but if restrictions change it will be available to Zoom.

Teams make up tables of eight; if you'd like to come but do not have a team let us know and we will find you a table to join! Tables should bring their own supper and the church will provide cutlery, plates and glasses. This year we will NOT be supplying cheese and biscuits because of Covid concerns, so please bring all the food and nibbles you will require to fuel your mighty brains! However, we WILL be providing a cash bar for beer, wine and soft drinks and politely request that attendees support this as part of our fundraising efforts for 2022, and don't BYOB!

Previous Events

Above you can see pictures from concerts, the St Michael's Players 2019 production of Salad Days, our Royal Garden Party and our St Paul's to St Paul's walk which raised over £2,500 in sponsorship money for our church. Some of our regular events include the Quiz Night in January and a Christmas Concert in December. Below is more information about some of our past events and at the bottom of the page you can look at galleries of photographs.

I Knew A SImple Soldier Boy brought to St Paul's the voices and music of those who participated in and lived through the Great War in two extraordinarily moving and powerful performances. Written by John Theakston and drawing on the personal reminiscences of ordinary people and contemporary soldiers' songs and music; the concert on 11 November 2018 exactly 100 years after the Armistice featured a choir of 55 adults, a children's choir of 35 from the Unicorn school in Kew and a professional orchestra of 15 players under the direction of West End musical director Michael Reed. Simon Shepherd narrated the performance, and we were also lucky enough to have Andee-Louise Hypolite, Michael George, Bogdan Kominowski, Rebecca Gresson and Bernd Steixner as our professional guest soloists. The fabulous theatrical lighting was by Andrew Voller Lighting Design Ltd and the superb sound by Simon Walter. Thanks so much Andy and SImon - we massively appreciate all your hard work! Below are a few photos of the event - many are from the dress rehearsal rather than the event itself!

Rock in a Hard Place is an exhuberant musical wtitten by Mike Reed and John Theakston, about the life of St Paul. It was premiered at St Paul's Church in 2015, and you can watch some short excerts from that event by clicking on the links below.

Photo Galleries of Events

  • Rock in a Hard Place is a brand new musical taking us through the life of St Paul. It has a witty and original script by John Theakston and music composed by Michael Reed and received its world premiere at St Paul's Church on Sunday 7 June 2015 at 7 pm. The cast included Bogdan Kominowski (who played Jesus in the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar), professional actors Danny Hill and performers Patrick Clancy and Keel Watson. The part of the narrator was sung by local opera singer Rebecca Gresson. You can get a flavour of the show below! There are also links to some live footage from the event above, under the Rock in a Hard Place poster.
  • In 2014 we commemorated the start of WW1 with our concert I Knew A Simple Soldier Boy. The event was sold out, and was a moving and marvellous occasion. Go to the website below to view our tribute.
  • To see some pictures of the last GroveSTOCK Music Festival - which was GroveSTOCK2013 - have a look below!This featured an amazing line up of bands both local and professional and a fantastic day was had by all!
  • Our May 2013 concert entitled Rejoice was a veritable extravaganza of brass, gospel and rock! It featured performances from The Chiswick Rock Choir, Mad About Gospel, our own St Paul's Choir and Quintessent Brass playing with local tuba supremo Kevin Morgan. You can look at some photos of the evening at:
  • One of our most successful concerts ever was to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The concert was a sell-out occasion and we all enjoyed this rousing and jubliant event on a beautiful May evening.
  • Over 40 children were involved in our performance of The Carnival of the Animals - with some amazing costumes as well as lots of singing and dancing! We also performed a new Michael Reed arrangement of The Daniel Jazz and Peter and the Wolf - a fabulous menagerie of music!

Second Sunday Concerts

The Second Sunday Concerts were a very popular series of concerts, which took place on the second Sunday of every month - hence the name! They were always in the church, which has excellent acoustics for live music, and are completely free! Concerts included one featuring four cellists from The London Mozart Players, who gave us a truly wonderful variety of gorgeous and spirited music and we've also been treated to classical guitar, trumpet, violin and piano as well as concerts featuring singing and jazz. If you would like to be on an email list to receive news of any forthcoming Second Sunday Concerts then please email Ben Chappell at with Concerts in the subject line.


GroveSTOCK is a fabulous summer music festival that takes place in the gardens and church! It is a charity event created by the residents of Grove Park to bring great music and some summer fun to the streets of Chiswick. There have been seven GroveSTOCKs to date, and over the years we've enjoyed music from an incredible array of musicians - both professional and amateur. The festival sometimes includes a kids talent competition - GroveFACTOR, and loads of different fun activities; plus a BBQ, bar and fireworks to finish! It is a non-profit making event, and all proceeds are donated to the charitable funds run by the church. We don't run GroveSTOCK every year as some years we put on summer concerts and events like our Olympic Ceilidh instead. See the photo galleries above for some more GroveSTOCK pictures!

Fireworks Party

Our Fireworks Party was a much-loved community event when we welcomed over 500 people into the gardens every November for a marvellous display of fireworks and our famous collosal bonfire! Over the years it has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity, but due to an increase in numbers in recent years, we no longer feel we can stage the event in its current form. So, we are having a break while we consider other options. Huge thanks to everyone who has come along, supported us, helped out and generally made this such a popular evening!

St Paul's Christmas Concert 

As well as the Advent and Christmas services that mark this special time of year; we always have a Christmas Concert - which is usually on the Sunday before Christmas Day. It features an eclectic mix of music and a variety of performances from many local musicians. Over the years we've enjoyed music from Mad About Gospel, The Swingle Bells Jazz Trio, Festive Folk and Ben and Bea Chappell. We've also been treated to some guest solos from stars of the West End shows. Our children's choir are always an important ingredient in the festive mix! At our 2015 concert, photographer Sirli Raitma took some super photos which really capture the jouous feel of the occasion and you can see those at
