Welcome to Victoria Park Baptist Church, Bristol. We’re a church of all ages and backgrounds!
In our service this morning we were thinking of Lamentations 1v4 'The roads to Jerusalem are mourning'. We recalled the cities of today which are in mourning. In the light of this, this seems an appropriate tweet to share tonight.
Victoria Park B C were very pleased to welcome Mayor Marvin Rees . He came to meet local people from Windmill Hill and surrounds . Before he left he joined us for our monthly community lunch.

Remembrance service this morning
As part of our thinking about peace and reconciliation this morning, we watched this video
In our harvest service this morning, we reflected on the network of people and provision which results in food for our tables... and how they all ultimately stem from the generous provision of God.
We’re a group of everyday people from all walks of life, but with one thing in common: we believe there’s a God, most clearly revealed in Jesus, who made us and is interested in us personally; who hates to see us lonely, sad or suffering, and wants us to be able to live life to the full!
Our aim is to learn about God and what he has done for us, and to respond to that in any way we can. We’re learning about ourselves too, how to conquer our failings and how God can help. It’s an epic journey – come and join us!
