News and What's on...

Maundy Thursday

On Thursday 18th April at 7pm we will be showing the film "Apostle Peter and the Last Supper" on our big screen. Admission is free and will be followed by the sharing of communion. The film lasts for 92 minutes and is Certified as a 12.

We would love to see you. 

Good Friday

On Good Friday (19th April) we will be joining with our sister Church, Owen Street Mission, at Whitebeam Court for Hot coss buns, Tea/Coffee and a time to reflect on the events of that first Good Friday. We will start at 10.30.

Everyone welcome.

Coming soon...

On Friday 3rd May we will be starting a new youth group. We are currently looking for volunteers that can help us, so if you have some experience of working in a Church youth group then please get in touch.

More information will follow soon.   

The Vinegar Bible 

We have now built a display cabinet to show our copy of the Vinegar Bible. Unfortunately this copy does not have a front cover and the spine and back cover are damaged, but the text is in good condition. Please see the picture below.  If you would like to see this in person then please contact us to arrange a convenient time.


Sunday Services update... 

On 13th January 2019 we welcomed another new person to the Church. The service was attended by people from England, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Costa Rica and Jamaica.

We are always delighted to see new people and if you would like to join us then please simply come along at 6pm on a Sunday Evening. Our services last approximately 1 hour and are held in a relaxed manner.  If you are a musician and in particular play the keyboard then we can definitely use your skills!                                                                                                                                                                         

Mission of Mercy book 

A book entitled the "Mission of Mercy" was written in 1977 about the history of the Bristol City Mission Society and features the work in Bristol and includes the work in and around St Judes. 

We are hoping that we can also at a later date update it to include more information since 1977 as so much has happened.

To view the book click here. We hope you enjoy reading about our history.

(Please note it will appear as a PDF which you can then download or print)

Other News

Please pray as we seek to find funding to develop our Kitchen.  We are looking to start running a Cafe which will be open daily, and alongside of this other activities will take place for the local residents and  clients of the Matthew Tree Project. To date we have been blessed by two donations for a total of £8,000, from The John James Foundation and an anonymous donation and we hope to start work during early 2019.
