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.
We are currently holding one service every week in one of our churches (please see the calendar) and there is an online service every Sunday which is available on YouTube :

Church opening for private prayer: the Widhill Aisle of St Sampson's Church will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, starting on Tuesday 16 June, from 10am – 2pm, observing social distancing and cleaning rules – and no more than six people may be in the building at any one time, including two church sitters.
Vacancy – Transition Team
A group is now being formed with representatives from across our Benefice to work together to plan and write an Upper Thames Group profile, together with our parish outlines, job description and person spec. The Team's first Zoom meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 10 June and an initial plan, drawn up by Adina Grace and Alison Beadle of Ashton Keynes who are heading up the Team, is taking shape showing projected timescales. Please hold this group in your prayers as the process begins, especially for God's leading throughout.
If you have a prayer request, let us know through Contact Us and our prayer network community will pray for you. If you would like to receive the prayer network emails, please email email@example.com
