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.

Appointment of the next Bishop of Bristol – getting involved  

Do you want to play your part in helping discern who our next Bishop will be?
Please come to an open meeting to learn about the role and process; to pray and to share your views as part of the consultation.  A meeting will be held in Chippenham Deanery at St Andrew’s Church Chippenham at 7.30pm on 12th October 2017 (coffee from 7pm).

You can also send you thoughts directly to the Diocese as they want to hear from as many and as broad a range of people as possible and are asking us to submit your views online. The online questionnaire focuses on three areas for comment:

  • What impact do you want the next Bishop of Bristol to make to the Diocese as a whole?
  • Which of Bishop Mike Hill’s qualities do you think the Diocese needs for the future?
  • What other qualities do you think the next Bishop of Bristol will need?

You can submit your own views individually or gather a group together to pray and discuss the qualities and impact you hope for from the next Bishop before making your response.

To find out more about other ways you can pray and feed into the consultation, visit https://www.bristol.anglican.org/our-next-bishop/

As the Rt Revd Mike Hill prepares to retire as Bishop of Bristol on 30 September 2017, he has written a final letter to parishes in the Diocese of Bristol.   The letter sets out his commitment to resourcing new ministers, calling for churches to pray for, equip and release a new generation of workers into the harvest field and specifically those to lead our churches.  To read the letter click here: Bishop Mike letter to parishes Aug 2017,

Or you can read it by going to the Bristol Diocese website: https://www.bristol.anglican.org/news/2017/08/22/letter-parishes-bishop-mike/
