Parklands Community Church is an emerging Christian community in the Locking Parklands development on the outskirts of Weston-super-Mare.

Members of Worle Baptist Church praying at the Old Chapel, 2011

A small group from Worle Baptist Church began meeting in homes and praying around the area in 2011. In April 2017, a new community facility opened on the development and Parklands Community Church began meeting together every Sunday morning. Since then we’ve welcomed new people from the area, many of whom have little or no church background. In September 2017 we appointed Minister-in-Training Claire Roberts as Community Pastor for four years, to support the leadership team approach to what we do.

As a church plant, we’re keen to do church in a way that is relevant and accessible for our local community. Our Sunday gatherings are very informal as we take people on a journey of getting to know Jesus. We’re also seeking to build community together through meals, regular prayer, home group and of course, trips to the pub!
