The Archbishops of Canterbury and York issued a letter on Tuesday 17th March, available here.
The Parish of Keynsham, as part of the Church of England, has suspended all acts of public worship. We are going to change the way we do things, not stop doing things. We will be praying as individuals and offering resources online (see our St John's and St Francis Facebook pages, as well as this website) and caring in ways that allow social distancing and doing things differently.
The clergy are also available as usual to be phoned or emailed. (see the 'About us' page)
God says, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.' (Hebrews 13:5)
We are Christians and we know the Lord Jesus Christ is with us.
Revd. Stephen M’Caw
We are sorry to announce that the Parish Office at St. John's is not accessible for people to call in as usual. It is not closed, but working differently.
If you need to speak to either Pam Gardner, Office Manager or Vicki MacRae, Facilities Manager you can call us on 0117 9863354. If we are not here, leave and message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org which may be quicker as we will be able to access emails from home.
We will be working alongside others to establish and coordinate schemes providing assistance to those in need throughout the community.
There is a new website under construction to replace this one - going live imminently!
We are now on Facebook - Follow us!

Clergy Consulation : if you are thinking of marrying in Keynsham Parish then please come along to a Clergy Consultation Session. These are held on the first and third Saturdays of each month at 9.30am in the Parish Office - you can talk to a member of the clergy and book a date! Please call us to make an appointment. Also note that changes to The Immigration Act of 2014 have resulted in changes to Marriage Law. We are now required by law to ask to see a copy of your passports before taking a booking for a wedding.
It is therefore vital that if you want to book and secure a date for your Wedding during your consultation that you bring your passports with you, and evidence of your address. There are more details in the marriage section of the website.
