St Paul's Anglican Church is a heritage-listed Anglican former church building located at 221 Old Northern Road, Castle Hill, The Hills Shire, New South Wales, Australia. It is also known as St Paul's Anglican Church (former) and St Paul's Church (former). The former church was added to the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 2 April 1999.[1]

The current St Paul's Anglican Church, a church in the Diocese of Sydney,[2][3] has been enlarged and relocated to 421 Old Northern Road, Castle Hill.

History[edit]

A church of St Simon was established in Castle Hill very early in the history of the Colony of New South Wales. However it closed by the middle of the 19th century. As the district population increased, a new parish was established in Castle Hill named for St Paul. The new church building was constructed of brick and was located at 221 Old Northern Road, south of the township, on the corner of Church Street. A sandstone parsonage was constructed opposite the church from materials of the old St Simon's Church. Both buildings remain today and are subject to state and local preservation orders.[1][4] This church building served the parish until the end of the latter half of the 20th century.

The current larger St Paul's Anglican Church was constructed at Rogans Hill on land owned by the church, adjacent to Oak Hill College. The new facilities cater to a congregation of over a 1,000 worshipers. The church is located approximately 35 kilometres (22 mi) north-west of the Sydney central business district.
