Little Churches are groups or communities of people that meet throughout the week on different days in the church, homes, pubs and other venues across Bristol. Little Church is the best way to be part of the family at B&A, we’d love everyone to have the opportunity to make lasting friendships to live life together, whilst exploring and deepening their faith.
Find out a little but about our Little Churches below, make contact with one of the leaders, or contact James for more info.

Led by Adam and Abby
We're all about Jesus. As a family of friends we aim to build one another up in our faith in Jesus to equip each other to live boldly, standing out for God in our weekday contexts, whether that's work, home, or something else.
We create a safe, peaceful and open 'church' space in our homes that's great for a whole heap of different people, whether those with ongoing questions, those who have recently returned to their faith, people looking to dig deeper or just wanting to see how God fits in to our busy everyday.
Led by Simon and Rosie
We’re an all age little church that meets just off the Gloucester Road. We’re passionate about Jesus, our local community and eating together with our family and friends. We love sharing stories of what God has been up to in our everyday lives, whether that be on our street, at work, school, out on bikes or helping at the Wild Goose.
