About Us

We are a family friendly multicultural Anglican church in the Parish of Holy Trinity, St Gabriel, St Lawrence and St Jude within the Ward of Lawrence Hill in the city of Bristol. We desire to be a place of welcome, meeting and refuge for all, inspired by the generous, loving, non-violent life of Jesus.

We want to take our place in the wind of ‘the Spirit of Life in Christ’,
And so be an expression, among others, of the life of Jesus in our community.

We value:

1. Welcome
We aim to be welcoming and accessible to people from near and far, old and young, of all faiths and none.

2. Connection
We want to grow in our:
· Connection with Jesus, and his radical, upside down, kingdom of God;
· Connection with each other in ECFC, building deeper relationships, and valuing and serving each other;
· Connection with our community, patiently getting to know our neighbours, developing partnerships and looking for opportunities for dialogue.

3. Being ourselves and joining in
We want to feel safe to really be ourselves, discovering freedom to answer Jesus in our lives and participate in the life of ECFC according to our abilities, energy, interests and calling.

4. Justice
We care about social justice, actively engaging with local challenges, the climate emergency, and global inequality.
