Horfield Parish Church belongs to the Diocese of Bristol within the Church of England. It has been a place of Christian worship and a resource for Christian life and spirituality for over 1000 years.
We delight in the tradition which we inherit, and which grows and develops through us now.
At the heart of this tradition is the Mass, which unites us with Christ and consecrates us as his people.
And as Christ's people we aim:
to welcome and cherish everyone, and to exclude no one;
to foster the inner spiritual quest, and to empower practical Christian living;
to listen to the world around us, and respond to its needs as we can;
to be open, vulnerable, and willing to face challenges and question assumptions.
Like all churches, we fall short of these aims, and depend on God's forgiveness and constant invitation to start afresh.
