Welcome!

We are here to serve the combined Anglican churches and the wider communities of Corsham, Neston and Gastard, and Lacock with Bowden Hill; however, with effect from 1st March 2024, the parish of Lacock with Bowden Hill will be leaving the Greater Corsham Team of churches to join a new grouping with St Peter’s Chippenham. Our main aim is to grow followers of Jesus Christ through three key areas of activity which build upon each other, and which encourage us to look up, in and out:

  • Growing in God (or looking up). We will be committed to being disciples of Jesus through prayer, Bible study and an active Christian life.
  • Growing in Love (or looking in). We will model Christian love towards each other, creating attractive and hospitable communities of faith where people feel at home.
  • Growing Community (or looking out). We will engage with our communities, seeking to be a Christian influence and encouraging people to follow Jesus.

A prayer for the Holy Land from the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem
O God of all justice and peace, we cry out to you in the midst of the pain and trauma
of violence and fear which prevails in the Holy Land. Be with those who need you in
these days of suffering; we pray for people of all faiths – Jews, Muslims and
Christians and for all people of the land. While we pray to you, O Lord, for an end to
violence and the establishment of peace, we also call for you to bring justice and
equity to the peoples. Guide us into your kingdom where all people are treated with
dignity and honour as your children for, to all of us, you are our Heavenly Father. In
Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
