Traditional worship in a beautiful historic church

Historically this is my family church but I only visit occasionally but it is good to attend a church which stays with traditional Church of England worship.

I visited during the Bristol Open Door Day. I live nearby, but have never been inside - it's a beautiful church! I did the rooftop tour and the bell ringing tour, and both were well worth the trip. Make sure you show up early to get tickets, cause the tours fill up fast!

It is a stunning example of gothic architecture. The churchyard itself is a lovely place to come and sit and reflect or just eat your sandwich on a sunny day!

We were staying nearby for the weekend and when looking around this beautiful church discovered they were having a Carols by candlelight service in the evening which we decided to attend. The service was well conducted and the choir was very good. If you are in the area it is certainly worth a visit.

We discovered this beautiful church when searching for jazz on a visit to Bristol. The interior of the church is magnificent and well worth a visit for the vaulted roof and stained-glass windows alone.
