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".

Are you organised

.. able to deal with paper, people and those strange animals ... the clergy?
Can you prepare agendas, be the focus for The PCC, arrange meeting rooms, plan ahead and make sure others stick to schedules? I can't! That's why it would be great if you could contact me to say you will be our new PCC Secretary. This is a voluntary position, that's right - no monetary reward but imagine the smiley faces around the PCC table after you say....”I will”

Please pray for those doing GCSEs 2 May - 12 June and others doing A levels 9 to 29 June.
