Central (St Philip and St Jacob with Emmanuel), Bristol


Central is a truly unique church in the city of Bristol. Our members gather from across the city and beyond at St Philip and St Jacob church, which is one of the oldest ecclesiastical meeting places in the city, which has been set apart for worship, prayer and teaching for 850 years. We have a passion to live in the fullness of life that is discovered in true discipleship to Jesus and to be transformed more into the image of God through the active work of the Holy Spirit within us. We recognise that the more we take this seriously the more we discover life.
