About Us

We are a group of people of different ages, backgrounds and experiences from Chipping Campden and the surrounding area learning together about the transforming love of Jesus. In our daily lives Sunday through Saturday we live out our faith in the places we go and in things we do. Through serving others and the community we want to make Jesus’s love known.

 

We meet in a magnificent building that was built for the glory of God and has through the centuries been a place of Christian worship. The stones are soaked in the prayers of the Ages. 

 

Please get in touch to find out more or come and join us and see what we are up to and what is going on.

Sunday Services 

Everyone is welcome to share worship.

 

People are encouraged to wear face coverings particularly as they enter and exit the building. Please be sensitive to others and maintain social distancing where possible.

 

Sunday services are;

 

9.30 am - Holy Communion, the traditional language with a robed choir

 

11 am – Holy Communion or Morning Praise, suitable for all ages

 

6.30 pm – Compline/Night Prayer except on the first Sunday when there is sung Evensong

 

On the first Sunday of the month there is just one morning service, “The Ten” at 10am. This service is for everyone and it provides an opportunity for people to explore and deepen their faith in an informal atmosphere.

 

You are free to attend the service that suits you best.

 

In St Michael and All Angels, Broad Campden, there are two services of Holy Communion a month.

 

There are occasional changes to this pattern for festivals and when we worship with our neighbouring parishes.

 

You are also very welcome to join the digital prayer services offered by the Vale and Cotswold Edge Team throughout the week. For more details see:

Individual Prayer

Throughout the week the church is available for private prayer. You will be welcome to sit anywhere whilst you pray. We hope you find God’s peace and presence.

 

The Lady Chapel/North Chapel is normally set aside for private prayer and the wall hanging there invites silent contemplation. The focus of the design is light.

 

The church is usually open between 11 am and 4 pm in the summer and 11.30am to 3 pm in the winter, except for Sundays when the church opens at 12.15pm.
