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.

PILGRIM COURSE 2.  Revd Victor started our second course on 1st Sunday in September at Corsham and the course will continue on the first Sunday of each month at the Corsham 10am Holy Communion service, from Sept 19-Mar 20 (omitting Dec and Jan) based on the Beatitudes, the challenging collection of sayings by Jesus known as the Sermon on the Mount. The next session (Sunday 6 Oct) will look at “Living for what is right”.

Each time there will be a handout  to take home with some questions you might like to explore. To go alongside the handout two groups will be run in the week following the Sunday—one on Tuesday mornings at 1a Grove road at 10.30am and another on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm in Church House – to meet with others who may like to discuss and explore further.

For further information contact admin@corshamandlacockchurches.org.uk.

Changes to service pattern at NESTON.   Starting in September there will be an additional service on the 2nd Sunday at Neston. This informal service for all the family will take place every second Sunday of the month at 9.00am, and consists of a short service in church followed by a light breakfast in the church vestibule, and the opportunity to contribute to the beginning of the 10.00am service in church, which is either Morning Worship or Holy Communion depending on the availability of clergy. This will run for a 6-moth trial period.
