Welcome to your local church

Here you’ll find news, information and resources from the family of Anglican (Church of England) churches in Long Ashton, Barrow Gurney and Flax Bourton.   We’re a community of people of all ages and backgrounds who meet together regularly to worship God, to explore and grow in our Christian faith and to make a positive difference in the places we live and work.  You can also read more about our Vision and Priorities.  

We love meeting new people and we’re here to serve everyone who lives in our three villages, regardless of whether you come to church or not.  Please do get in touch if you’d like to get involved, want to know more, have a question, or simply need a listening ear.

A message from our Vicar, James

It’s sometimes said that the local church is the hope of the world - because, when it’s working right, a local church becomes the hands and feet of Jesus himself, and so can harness all the immense power, creativity and love of God to transform lives and communities for the better. That’s why I often say my job is the best job in the world - because I’m called to deal in hope, and to encourage and equip others to do the same. You see, in these uncertain times, I’m convinced that the way we are is not in fact the way they need end up. I believe that the love of God is bigger and stronger than all the worries, trouble and pain life can throw at us. I trust that God has a plan to transform the Earth, step by step and soul by soul, to become more like that dimension of existence we call Heaven. And I see it happening all around me every day as ordinary people like you and me get stuck in serving their neighbours and joining in with the transforming work of God. Maybe that’s not what you thought the church was about. Maybe it is. Whether it surprises or inspires or challenges you, come and have a chat. Find out more. See what we’re up to. Get involved. You’re more than welcome: this is your church.
