• Creating opportunities for everyone to experience God's love

    Upper Thames Group: Holy Cross Ashton Keynes, St Sampson's Cricklade, St John's Latton, All Saints' Leigh

    We aim to be a warm and welcoming Christian community. We have a variety of worship services across the four churches and our church members are aged 0 to 90 with almost everything in between! Find out more about our community, services, events and activities on this website … and better still come along and see for yourself. You will be most welcome. We are part of the Anglican Church within the Diocese of Bristol.

    Due to the second lockdown there will be no services held in church until December. There are, however, online services each Sunday on our YouTube channel:

    Vacancy – Transition Team

    A group is now being formed with representatives from across our Benefice to work together to plan and write an Upper Thames Group profile, together with our parish outlines, job description and person spec. The Team's first Zoom meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 10 June and an initial plan, drawn up by Adina Grace and Alison Beadle of Ashton Keynes who are heading up the Team, is taking shape showing projected timescales. Please hold this group in your prayers as the process begins, especially for God's leading throughout.
