    Donating food to make a difference in Bristol

    The Matthew Tree Project provides emergency food and assistance for vulnerable families and individuals in Bristol who, for whatever reason, find they are out of money to buy food and are going hungry. It is now easy to help by getting a few extra items when you shop, and simply bringing them to church. Here is a shopping list of useful items.

  • Fasting, feasting and following

    Fasting, feasting and following

    Jesus started his ministry with a fast and spent the night before he died with a feast. What is so important about food in following Jesus? We asked discipleship group leader and occupational therapist Helen Leckie.

  • Precious


    Pip n Jay supports Caroline Thomas, who runs an Iris Ministries team looking after abandoned children in Madagascar. This is the story of one child who is now in their care.

    I'm new! What do I do?

    Bristol is a fantastic, vibrant city with lots of creative culture, places to see, people to meet and stuff to do.

    If you're making time to be part of a church, we'd expect that's not because you had nothing else to do. If you want to join us in following Jesus and working out what it means to live on mission with him, we'd love to help you get settled in.

Real faith = whole of life

We believe in a God who wants us to have life in all its fullness.

That means faith is the foundation of our work, home, families, communities, education - everything for us. We want to live the whole of our lives God's way.

Jesus showed that a full life with full-on faith can't be contained by a building or boundaries between people. It's for everyone, and you're invited.

Some of the places we spend our time:

Family and community

This includes the people we live closest to right now, the people will always be related to and the people we are in touch with who have built community relationships around where they are or what they like doing.


The relationships we form in education can be some of the most important in our whole lives, shaping who we are and how we see the world forever.


If we are working, the chances are that this takes up most of our waking lives! Colleagues will get to know us over a long time, see what we are like under pressure, and see a lot of our character. The kind of faith we show at work reveals who we really are.


In a city like ours, we are never far from people who, for lots of possible reasons, are on the margins of communities rather than fully embedded. It might be that forming relationships is hard, or that something has gone wrong.
