South Cheltenham Team Benefice

St Peter’s Leckhampton  is part of a wider team of churches across south Cheltenham.  We work with Emmanuel, St Philip and St James Leckhampton, St Stephen’s Tivoli and the Church in Warden Hill to provide ministry across the south Cheltenham area.

The Church in Warden Hill

The Church in Warden Hill is a Local Ecumenical Partnership (external link) (LEP) between St Christopher's Church, Warden Hill, and the Warden Hill United Reformed Church. Our two component churches are both modern, situated close to each other in the mainly residential area of Warden Hill in south Cheltenham.

The Church in Warden Hill is a fine example of two traditions coming together to show unity in Christ Jesus. With keen ecumenical leaders, the two churches have spent the last ten years getting to know one another and worshipping together more frequently. We must not lose sight of why we wanted to come together - to show Warden Hill estate that we are Christians first and foremost, with a will to serve our local community. We are blessed with having two buildings that are available for community use and also youth workers to guide us in working alongside young people. Jesus showed by example that we should serve one another. Whether Anglican or Reformed, this is basic to our faith. We are here at the heart of Warden Hill as witnesses to Christ in all we do.

Sunday morning services are usually held at 10.30am at St Christopher's. Please see the website for more details.

St Stephen’s Tivoli

St Stephen's Church is part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Gloucester, which is part of the world wide Anglican Communion, and is one of 5 churches in the South Cheltenham Team Ministry

St Stephen's is the Parish Church of Tivoli, Cheltenham and is the smallest parish in the Cheltenham Deanery.

The worshiping community at St Stephen’s rejoices in the knowledge that God works through those whom he has called to be his disciples, and counts it a privilege to work for Him in this parish, this town and through the worldwide Church.

St Stephen’s welcome you to join them for the Eucharist, the centre of their worship, celebrated every Sunday at 10am (sung Eucharist, contemporary language) and at 10.30am on Wednesday.

St Philip and St James Leckhampton

Pip and Jims aims to be an inclusive and family-friendly church. We have a cross section of ages including toddlers, young families, teenagers and upwards. Our singing encompasses the best of old and some of the new and is often led by our choir and worship group. Our worship is liturgical but not stuffy and follows the seasons of the Church year. Our preaching aims to be biblical, challenging and addressing contemporary social and political issues.

The 10am family-friendly, inclusive service of Holy Communion is our main Sunday service.  It includes both traditional and modern hymns and worship songs.  Our services follow the seasons of the Church year and our preaching aims to offer intellectual and spiritual challenge.  Everyone is welcome to join us for tea and coffee at the back of Church after the service.

Please see the website for more details of service times.

Emmanuel Cheltenham

Emmanuel Church is located at the heart of the community in the Naunton Park area of Cheltenham.  We believe church is for everyone. IIt should inspire, encourage, nurture and enable. Each Sunday we gather to think, pray, sing and listen. So that in song or silence, in prayer or pondering, in church or the community we can grow closer to God and to each other and make a positive difference in the world.  We have Communion Services each Sunday at 8am and 10am  and Thursday at 10.30am.
