Creating opportunities for everyone to experience God's love
We aim to be a warm and welcoming Christian community. We have a variety of worship services across the four churches and our church members are aged 0 to 90 with almost everything in between! Find out more about our community, services, events and activities on this website … and better still come along and see for yourself. You will be most welcome. We are part of the Anglican Church within the Diocese of Bristol.

The latest COVID-19 restrictions mean our Upper Thames churches (St Sampson's, Holy Cross AK, Latton and the Leigh) are all locked, which is a great sadness but necessary to keep vulnerable people safe and the NHS from catastrophic overload.
No one can visit our churches, so instead, let us continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable, and build our communities, even while separated.
Let's have a flood of prayer in all our Upper Thames parishes from people praying at home.
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort. knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
"Cast all your cares on to Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7
'Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.' John 14.27
