Welcome!

We are here to serve the combined Anglican churches and the wider communities of Corsham, Lacock, Bowden Hill, Neston and Gastard. Our main aim is to grow followers of Jesus Christ through three key areas of activity which build upon each other, and which encourage us to look up, in and out:

  • Growing in God (or looking up). We will be committed to being disciples of Jesus through prayer, Bible study and an active Christian life.
  • Growing in Love (or looking in). We will model Christian love towards each other, creating attractive and hospitable communities of faith where people feel at home.
  • Growing Community (or looking out). We will engage with our communities, seeking to be a Christian influence and encouraging people to follow Jesus.

From the 13th February 2017, for five weeks, St. Cyriac’s will be closed Monday-Thursday while the heating system is fully replaced and improved. During this time the church will be open at weekends, but there will be no heating.

During this period services will take place in St Anne’s Bowden Hill (SN15 2PP) with Junior Church meeting in the Manor Room. Please see the February 2017 issue of Church News (available from 28 Jan) for additional details.

The Family Service at Corsham on 26 Feb will take place in the Corsham Town Hall, rather than St Bart’s.  The Young Church Bubble is leading this service and is keen to again have a successful “different” type of service to follow on from The Harvest Service, the Pets Service and the Grand Parents and Grand Children’s Service.   A quick search on the Internet will show that across the country churches of all denominations are now using this service as a popular means of reaching out to its church members and the Community. So why not Corsham?

Services of this type are mainly based on Jesus after the Resurrection cooking Breakfast on the beach and sharing d it with his fishermen disciples.  The Bible shows many instances where Jesus shared food, for example The Feeding of the 5000, The Wedding at Canaan, and the Last Supper. All that this Service is about is SHARING. We will SHARE Breakfast, Fellowship, and Worship with each other. Chat, sing, pray and enjoy a You Tube clip or two that show the meaning of SHARING. Do please come along at 9.45 am to the Town Hall to SHARE, meet, greet and maybe laugh with the people of our Church and Community.
