Notes:

The church is Romanesque in character and can hold over 400 people. The entrance door of polished oak is set in a marble paved porch, framed in a surround of golden marble and surmounted by a figure panel of St Paul in Venetian Glass mosaics.
The nave is paved with Austrian oak blocks, and the sanctuary with white and green marbles. Both are vaulted. A baptistry is located in the south west corner under its own roof, and there are confessionals at each end of the church. There is an organ gallery at the west end of the nave, and there are attractive side chapels.
The Stations of the Cross were a gift of Mr E G Hayden, a former editor of the Mid Sussex Times, in memory of his parents. They too are Romanesque in style and the figures are shaded in old ivory with brown tones and gold halos. St Paul's was the first church in England to have this style of Stations of the Cross; they came from Northern France.
