Our Community

As you enter Shirehampton from Park Hill you will notice a sign on the right hand side of the road saying Shirehampton Village and I think most people would agree that although Bristol continues to grow in every direction somehow Shirehampton has managed to keep its identity and village feel.

This is certainly helped by the river Avon the Kingsweston Estate and the Golf Club as they form boundaries and clear separation around the village. The High Street with its many shops and of course the Green even if the road does run through the middle of it also help.

The other key ingredient is of course the people as with many village communities all over the country generations of families have lived in the village and everyone seems to know everyone else. As soon as something happens in the village the grape vine works and before you know it the news is public knowledge.

Luckily for St Mary's our building sits slap bang in the middle of the village next to the Co-op and on route to the Health Centre. Of course many of our congregation live, work and go to school in the village, but we have a wider congregation that stretches to many of the Shirehampton community. Some of whom would not consider themselves part of our congregation however they do so much to support us by coming to our regular fayres, sales, special services, daily opening for coffee and fund raising events. All of these things help keep St Mary's functioning and available to support our community with spiritual support, Baptism Weddings, Funerals or simply a quiet place to sit and gather your thoughts with the opportunity to talk if you want to.

Thank you for your support do drop in and see us soon.
