Welcome to the church on the hill

Our Concert Series

The people who built our beautiful church may not have realised it, but they were also building a fine acoustic space.  We wanted to allow a wider audience to experience the magnificent sound of the church, and also to provide a concert setting in E Bristol.  With, in particular, the great efforts of Aylwyn Powell, Philippa Vandeleur, and Jane Hole, we have been able to set up and promote a concert series over the last two years, with bookings now well into next year.  Choirs and orchestras that play here always want to return, and we have now also built up an enthusiastic regular audience.

We see this as part of our service to the community,  in providing an inexpensive night out, in lovely surroundings, for people who might not want or be able to travel into Bristol, as well as introducing this beautiful building and its fine acoustics to those who might not normally think of entering our doors.  The concerts are normally priced at £5-£7 ; non-alcoholic refreshments are also available.  Proceeds usually support our redevelopment fund, Raise the Roof, but some concerts support other charities.Our concerts are very varied, including male voice choirs,  brass bands, folk groups and small singing groups.
