Who are we?

We're part of West Cheltenham Team Ministry.
We're a lively, welcoming bunch of all ages from all walks of life and we'd love to see you.

Our Vision & Values

To be empowered by the Holy Spirit, deeply rooted in our local community, full to bursting with people finding and growing in faith and discovering and using their gifts.
In everything we do we seek to be prayerful, caring, welcoming, encouraging and creation- aware.

Our services are relaxed, lively and family-focussed.
We have a group of musicians leading our singing.
We sing modern songs as well as traditional hymns.
We use a big screen not service sheets.
We like to think we are modern not "traditional".

This week: 20 November - 26 November

Cafe Nov17[8328]

Cafe Church

Sometimes Church can be hard to understand, confusing or just plain boring.
Instead of our normal service where everyone sits in rows of seats, we sit around tables, drink tea and coffee, eat cake and discuss faith in a family friendly and fun atmosphere.
We also have papers to read if you’d like to. It’s still a service, we sing songs, hear a bit of a talk and say some prayers but it’s very relaxed.
If your children are being a bit noisy that’s fine, if you want to grab another drink that’s fine. If you don’t believe in God and want to see what’s going on, that’s fine too. Everyone’s welcome.
