"Whoever you are; wherever you come from, everyone is welcome here”
The people of Horfield Parish Church try to make these words come alive by example. We are a community gathered in the Church of the Holy Trinity with St. Edmund, and part of the community of Horfield, Bristol.
Our worship is centred on the Eucharist and the sacramental life of God’s church, that we may grow as people who witness, live and experience God’s love at work in the ordinary rhythm of daily life. We worship in the liberal, inclusive, catholic tradition of the Church of England
You will find a warm welcome in our church from people who strive to follow Jesus through prayer, fellowship and service to the wider community. We understand church is not the place to be given firm answers, but a safe place to ask searching questions, find reflective space and be ourselves before God who is love.
We seek to honour the diversity that strengthens us and enhances and enriches our common life. Our church is a place where we have the opportunity to continue our journey towards God together, young and old, encouraging and supporting one another and welcoming the visitor and the stranger with a hospitality that assures no one need travel alone.
Revd. Canon David McGladdery, SCP.
What’s happening with the windows?
The plan is to have protection for the windows installed at the same time as the repairs and artwork, however, as our insurance is on a ‘like for like’ basis, we will need to fund the protection ourselves. At the same time as information on the repairs and protection is being collated, the Standing Committee have been considering quotes from companies specialising in CCTV systems. This will include the installation of cameras both inside and outside the church.
We have launched a Just Giving page which can be accessed via the link below for anyone who would like to make a donation towards the cost of the protection for the windows and the CCTV system.
Please spread the word in the local community. . Additional updates will be provided as information becomes available. If you have any questions, please do ask Fr David, Fergus or Caroline.
