Church of England Diocese of Bristol Downend

Christ Church Downend

We are a lively, welcoming Anglican Church which meets in two buildings - our 9.15am congregation meet at The Church Centre in Bromley Heath, and the 10.30 and 6.30 congregations meet at the Parish Church. 

Our motto is "Learning to Live the Life," reminding us to live like Jesus lived and to follow him in his strength.  We love to worship, learn and serve together, and we encourage one another to live out ou faith in our daily lives. We have good links with our local community and local schools.  We look to serve others including through the debt relief charity Christians Against Poverty. We are a community of diverse ages and backgrounds and we want to celebrate each other's gifts so there are many opportunities to get involved.
