Welcome to the Sodbury Vale Benefice. We are a group of four Anglican churches: St John the Baptist, Chipping Sodbury; St John the Baptist, Old Sodbury; St Adeline’s, Little Sodbury; St James the Elder, Horton.

In everything we do, we place a high emphasis on welcoming everyone, offering good quality worship & preaching/teaching and making friends.  There are activities for children during the Sunday service at St John’s, Chipping Sodbury and we have monthly all-age services in three of our churches. We run home groups which meet fortnightly or monthly and courses for those wishing to explore the Christian faith and/or be confirmed.

You are warmly invited to our Sunday services – come and see for yourself – we look forward to welcoming you.

Jane Kenchington,

Baptism Fun Afternoon

We love baptising children and adults alike.  It means they join our Church family and that’s exciting.  So we plan to celebrate this.

On the afternoon of 20th September from 2pm to 4pm we’ve got a bouncy castle, crafts, food and all manner of things.  We’ll have a short service to remember being Christened/Baptised and there’ll be the customary goodie bag to take home.

There’s still time to sign up for it, if you have a child who was baptised in the last 4-5 years, just get in touch with Yvonne or Hilary Holder and give us your details.
Be lovely to have as many as possible enjoy the afternoon with us.
