The Anglican Christian

Who We Are

Saint Paul's is a Anglican Church located in the heart of California's Silicon Valley in Los Altos, California.

Holding a faith and practice governed by Holy Scripture
Established to preserve the Evangelical Witness of the historic Anglican church
Using the Book of Common Prayer
Upholding traditional Christian and family values

This Church holds the Faith as once delivered to the saints, and as transmitted through the Church of England, especially as articulated in her Reformation heritage, the range of her Anglican divines, and as deposited in the founding principles of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Furthermore, this Church receives Holy Scripture as the Word of God. We affirm the three ancient creeds, commonly known as the Nicene, Apostles' and Creed of Athanasius, the dogmatic definitions of the first four ecumenical councils of the undivided church and The Thirty-nine Articles of Religion in their 1801 form

Parish History

The Story of Saint Paul's

Saint Paul’s Anglican Church Was Founded In 1967 As A Community Committed To The Same Doctrines That The Early Church Universally Believed, And Which Were Rekindled In The Sixteenth Century By The English Reformers.

The Very Reverend Norman Milbank became the parish’s first rector when he was ordained at nearly fifty years of age. Rev. Milbank credits his personal friend and parishioner Dr. Rousas John Rushdoony as the impetus to also launch Canterbury Christian School on the campus.

In God’s providence, we found a permanent home when the property at 101 North El Monte Avenue, Los Altos, came on the market in 1970. A small Baptist group had built two lovely buildings on two acres of land. Saint Paul’s acquired the property, and the first service in its new home was held on October 25, 1970.
