St Lawrence C of E Church is situated at the heart of Barnwood.

Our Parish Church dates back to Norman times. Its beautiful and atmospheric inner sanctum offers a quiet and relaxing environment in which to worship.

The impressive tower is early 16th century and the peals of its bells can be heard ringing through Barnwood and Abbeymead on a Sunday morning.

We offer a wide range of Church of England services to suit any visitor to our church.

Families find our specially designed Let's Praise and Let's Celebrate services welcoming and fun.

Our Parish Centre was opened in 2001 and offers a modern and spacious facility for the community. During very busy services, at Christmas for example, we may need to park pushchairs and buggies in the centre, rather than in the church, for everyone's safety. We are more than happy to hold babies, or help unload and park your pushchair or buggy for you, so that you can enjoy the service.

The church family also offers extra events and weekly groups to cater for all needs and interests.
Both Church and Parish Centre are easily located on Church Lane in Barnwood (find us).
