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,
