LoveBristol is both a church and charity.
We are based mostly in Stokes Croft but have a passion for the whole city. We are interested in supporting existing projects and setting up new ones. Our hope is to try to love, care and support communities across Bristol and we are committed to creating a resource that will bring about positive change for the city of Bristol and the surrounding areas. LoveBristol is a not for profit organisation supported by a combination of social enterprise, gifts and grant aided support.
It is a city project, with a leadership team and trustees with a passion for the city of Bristol and our the core values are - Creativity, Community and Care
We are People-Centred
Love, Grace and mercy expressed to each other and others around us through Friendships and support. We want to do life together, acting as family for one another, nurturing and challenging each other in a journey of faith. Hospitality, Inclusion, accountability, random acts of kindness is the flavour. Relationships with people in our local neighborhood, mutual respect and an openness about our pursuit of a life with Jesus. Committed to loving people on the margins who are often over looked, we want to invest in these friendships and offer practical support wherever we can.
We are Prayer-driven
We aspire to be a community with prayer as the foundation of all that we do and as an offering to those around us. Our first commitment is to pursue a 24-7 lifestyle of prayer, our second commitment is an open culture of prayer responding to people and circumstances with prayer and intercession.
We are Spirit-filled
A community that is filled and overflowing with the Holy Spirit is alive, We need that to do what we do. We believe God is always speaking and we enjoy the twists and turns of our adventures being led by his voice, calling us into more freedom and a sacrificial lifestyle.
We are rooted in Compassion
We aim to be a community that chooses mercy over judgement, regarding each other and those around us. We aim to be a community that cares for the poor and stands up for injustice. Our commitment is to work closely with agencies that care for the homeless and marginalised. Our commitment is to seek ways which we can bless and care for our surrounding area, recognising both its beauty and challenges.
