I'm David Lloyd and I'm the current Vicar of Henbury, based at St. Mary's Church.
Originally from Southwark diocese I worked as an architect in the City of London until the 1980's when I went to Theological College and was ordained. After my curacy (training post) in an Inner City housing estate in South London I moved to Bedminster to be Vicar of St. Aldhelm's Church.
I came to Henbury in January 2000 when Bishop Barry Rogerson asked me to be Vicar at St. Mary's, which feels quite a long time ago now!
Our church building is very old and very beautiful. It has served our community for many hundreds of years and we are delighted that people continue to find it a place of prayer and peace for all.
When not being Vicar I enjoy working as a volunteer at the Bristol Bike Project, playing in a Swing Band most weeks and supporting the 'Blue' side of the City.
At St. Mary's we aim to offer a warm welcome to everyone so why not pay us a visit?
