A wonderful place to have worship and fellowship. Love spending time here. Everyone is very friendly. more »
Quick butchers in while open doors for the public, pretty impressive if on a small scale. Right in the centre of town close to St Nicks Market. Friendly and informative volunteers.
I really cannot comprehend the negative reviews left for Christ Church. Two stars? Seriously? It is one of the most beautiful historical buildings of Bristol, it houses a wonderful-sounding pipe organ, with its earliest pipework dating back to Renatus Harris, the interior is exquisite and features wonderful acoustics, the music ministry is top-notch, the preaching is solid, and the Liturgy is still celebrated according to the 1662 prayer book. Overall, a wonderful place to be, and highly recommended for recitals and concerts.
