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.

CORSHAM BREAKFAST SERVICE.  On Sunday 20 Oct St Bart’s will be holding a Breakfast Service in the Town hall – doors open for breakfast at 9.45am – led by our Youth bubble and Revd Andrew. This will be an all-age service with Holy Communion and will follow our now familiar audio-visual format. All are very welcome.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 10 NOV 19.  Services in the team will be:

    • 10.00am      Neston
    • 10:15am      Lacock
    • 10.30am     Gastard
    • 10.50am     Corsham  (This service is followed by an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial)

PILGRIM COURSE 2.  Revd Victor presents our second course 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 will be this Sunday 3 November when we will look at “Living transparently”.

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.   From September 2019 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.
