If you're a student in Bristol, the Community Church is a great place to be. We have regular morning meetings from 10:30am - 12:00pm, and we attend the evening service at Woodlands Church in Clifton. You'll be welcomed into the Community Church family with a hot meal (or several) and opportunities to join one of many small groups.
We also support the Student Welcome at Woodlands Church - your opportunity to get a free burger every day during fresher's week (24th - 27th September).
The Grupo Group
There is a group of young adults and students based at the Community Church who meet weekly to study the Bible at the Grupo Lounge in Westbury Village. It's very informal and a great way to meet people - you're very welcome to join us!
The Community Church is, unsurprisingly, focused very heavily on serving the local communities of Westbury and Southmead. So there are tons of ways to get stuck in with serving on our Sunday teams, or in our ministries during the week.
New Wine Discipleship Year
We offer a placement as part of the New Wine Discipleship Year (NWDY): An exciting year of adventure, investment and growth. It is a year of equipping, encouraging and empowering to see the Kingdom of God advance, here in the city of Bristol. Training is offered by the Müllers Course and placement is delivered across a range of Community Church ministries, as well as having the option to serve across the Woodlands congregations.
There is no financial cost for doing the NWDY, however it is a year of unpaid work and you will be expected to cover your living costs and to find your own accommodation.
Youth Work Placements
We are able to offer placements to students involved in youth and community work courses. We have a flexible approach to these placements, and you will have access to a line manager as well as pastoral support throughout your course.
If you interested in seeing The Community Church for yourself, or to join the team as part of the New Wine Discipleship Year, or to have us as a placement, please speak to our Student ministers: Matt and Maddie Doherty.
