Who we are
We’re a church based in Bristol but with links around the UK and beyond. We’re happy to be part of the wider family of God that includes Christians from all backgrounds, but we’re definitely on the more informal and creative side of things.
Like the Church when it started out 2000 years ago, we are just a bunch of disciples learning from Jesus and from each other. We meet all together every Sunday to worship, share and learn and we also meet in smaller groups during the week. We help each other through tough times and celebrate the good times. Every church is - thank goodness - different.
Please get in touch, to find out more.
Where we're based
We don't own our own building so we meet in various locations around bristol. See the Calendar for more >
What we value
We believe everyone is gifted. Like a body where every part is different but has an important part to play, we believe every member of the church brings something unique and vital. The church is everyone’s responsibility so when we meet, we want everyone to be able to take part.
We want to keep it simple. Church is family not organisation, so we want to keep things simple and flexible. We’re not big on rules and rituals.
We believe God loves this world. God wants to renew and refresh every aspect of life, not just the bits we think of as spiritual. Being a Christian affects how we care for the poor and the marginalised, how we use our money, how we treat each other and how we treat this planet.
We love to worship. We’re grateful to be living in a God-created world with a Father in heaven who loves us and cares about us. Thanking God for all of this reminds us of the rich life we’ve been given and strengthens our hope for the future.
We’re a community of hope. We’re well aware that we’re imperfect people in an imperfect world. But we believe that God is at work in us and in the world to bring justice, joy and peace and to put an end to suffering and death. This is the cause to which we have dedicated our lives.
We’re learning together. Each of us is a work in progress. We’re learning to live. We need not just God, but each other to help rub off the rough edges and to cheer us on when the going gets tough.
