We believe that Jesus gave us three overriding principles to live our lives by:
- Love the Lord your God with all your heart
- Love your neighbour as yourself.
- Make disciples of all nations
As a church we seek to outwork these principles in our personal lives and our life together and to be a church that is empowered by Jesus to make the world a place where people experience the reality of God’s love.
What is important to us?
To welcome anybody and everybody, just like Jesus does.
To see others and issues the way Jesus might.
To meet other’s needs just as God meets our needs.
To speak truthfully to each other because we love them.
To forgive others because we have been forgiven by God.
How do we do this?
In our Sunday morning services (10.30 – 12.00 a.m.) we aim to hear what God wants to say to us, and to respond in informal and lively worship. And for the children, there are groups for all ages which engage them in age-appropriate ways.
There are smaller groups that meet during the week in people’s homes. There is also a group for those exploring faith and there’s a group for teenagers.
We also server the local community in practical ways. Coffeetots is a parent and toddler group, Golden Blend is a coffee morning for the over 50’s. Xone is a youth group for 9-11’s, and X2 for 12+ ages.
We partner with other local churches in an Assemblies Team that words in schools in the area. ‘HOPE on the streets’ is an annual weekend where we join with local churches to help with people’s gardens, clearing up, and fun events for the children.
We are linked to other churches across Bristol through the Bristol Celebration Churches Network. The Celebration churches meet together regularly to share in a time of Celebration and teaching. We meet regularly with local church leaders to plan joint events to reach this community.
