About Us: Christchurch Abbeydale is one of a growing number of LEPs in England which comprise the four denominations (Baptist, Anglican, Methodist and United Reformed Church) in one congregation, and set in the heart of the community in a new (multipurpose) church building – opened in the spring of 1995. It serves the mixed housing estates of Abbeydale and Abbeymead 4 miles from the centre of Gloucester, which are continually being developed and will have a population of around 12,000 in due course. Church membership currently stands at 92 with a further 20 regular worshippers. We are people of varied ages and backgrounds who have come to know and trust Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and who seek to serve him in this community. We have a number of activities going on throughout each week, at which you will always find a warm welcome, throughout the year.
The Building. The church stands on a prominent site in the centre of the communities of Abbeydale and Abbeymead and can comfortably seat 185. It has a baptistry and a modern sound system. As well as the sanctuary area there is a lounge, a quiet room and a well equipped kitchen. Although the building was only opened in 1995, a worshipping congregation had begun in the area as far back as 1973.
Ministry. The congregation has its own minister who is appointed from each of the four denominations in turn. Worship is led mainly by that minister, but visiting ministers/preachers from the other three denominations are invited on a regulatr basis.
Church Life. In addition to services of worship held on Sundays, baptisms of adults and infants, weddings and funerals all take place at Christchurch. Holy Communion is celebrated twice a month on Sundays and once a week on Wednesdays.
The Congregation. All are welcome to worship at Christchurch and to join in any of the activities which take place. Membership is open to Christians who either have moved from another church where they were members or to those accepted into membership by the church. We are always glad to welcome new people into membership.
