Supporting the communities of our city and Diocese

As well as offering a safe and inclusive place for all in the centre of Bristol, we seek to step outside of our building and show God’s love throughout our city and Diocese.

“Having lost a friend to a drugs overdose a few years ago, I felt that I wanted to give something back to the people who had supported him through his tough times. When the opportunity arose to volunteer at the Bristol Churches Winter Night Shelter I jumped at the chance. I feel very proud to have been a part of this project for over 3 years now. the support of everyone involved in the project is astounding and the feedback from the guests is very positive and heart-warming”
