About

Tewkesbury  &  Apperley

 
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.
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
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.


 

Family Outreach Worker

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.
