About

Tewkesbury,  Apperley  &  Winchcombe

Tewkesbury

The historic market town of Tewkesbury stands at the confluence of the rivers Avon and Severn. It has many charming places to visit, the Abbey, museums, good restaurants, coffee bars and riverside walks. Famous in the past for producing high quality mustard. 'The Royal Hop Pole' hotel is mentioned by Charles Dickens' in 'The Pickwick Papers'. The 1471 medieval battle re-enactment on the 2nd weekend of July is the largest in Europe.
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Apperley

The beautiful village of Apperley is approximately 5 miles south of Tewkesbury.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both our churches reach out to the community through social events, coffee mornings and charity work. We are always pleased to see visitors. As you browse the website you will see there are many opportunities for people of all ages to share in the life of the churches. We believe that being a Christian and to come to church, should be both a fulfilling and uplifting experience.


 

Winchcombe

A historic Saxon town with Cotswold stone and Tudor houses under Cleeve Hill. Famous for Sudeley Castle with its furnished rooms and gardens containing the Chapel which is the final resting place of Catherine Parr, Henry VIII last Wife. The heritage and police museum makes interesting viewing. Winchcombe has Steam heritage railway running  through it to near by towns and villages.

Family Outreach Worker   (T)

  My name is Clair and I am the Family Outreach Worker. The post is both challenging and rewarding, involving many church-based projects, such as Monday Minis (the toddler group) and Messy Church.

 The post involves working with many community outreach projects, such as Christmas Lights, Chernobyl children and holiday clubs.

 I enjoy being part of the Tewkesbury Churches Schools Team which is actively involved with the local schools, running Open the Book, assemblies, Christian Unions, PSHE (Personal Social Health Education) lessons, Prayer Spaces, and various other activities as requested.

                                                   You can contact Clair via the  'Contact' page.


 

Safeguarding

The aim of the Church Safeguarding policy is to create Christian communities of love and care, where good practice in this area becomes a way of life. All of the church's organisers & helpers that are with the children have been DBS checked.

Eco-Church  (T)

We have received our Silver Eco Church Award certificate and plaque!                    (Click on the plaque picture for advice.)

  We have become increasingly aware of our responsibility to the planet and to each other.

 We have worked hard to reduce waste, recycle, improve our energy efficiency and to raise awareness of the environmental challenges we face in our conversations and our services.

 We would ask that you as individuals think carefully about what you can recycle, and also church groups when disposing of items no longer of use.
