Henbury parish is the largest in Bristol diocese and includes the districts of Henbury, Brentry and Hallen as well as the Blaise Castle estate and the Mall shopping centre at Cribbs Causeway.
On the outside, St Mary’s looks like a typical picture postcard parish church. On the inside you will find that we have removed some of the pews to create a platform and a more welcoming entrance. Our worship is enhanced by our lively Director of Music, James, and our singing group.
We would be delighted to welcome you to our service which is:
10 am Family Communion
During term-time, the Junior Church meets in the village hall (a large building adjacent to the church rented from a charitable trust) during the 10 a.m. service, joining the rest of the congregation in the church building for communion and the last song. We also have a children’s corner in church for younger children who wish to stay with their parents. Sometimes we have an all-age service in the church, with more child friendly worship and activities related to the theme of the service dotted around the building.
After the 10 a.m. service people gather in the village hall for coffee, biscuits and fellowship. Sometimes we have Sunday lunches, either ‘bring and share’ or provided by the Mother’s Union. We organise regular social events such as outings to the theatre, day trips, and parish away-days.
Do come and join us and we look forward to meeting you.
