Dio­cese of Bris­tol

The Church of England - - News -

Rev, the Bri­tish tele­vi­sion sit­com, high­lights some of the prob­lems faced by many in­ner-city churches but the vicar of Bris­tol’s St Mary, Redcliffe, is pur­su­ing am­bi­tious long-term plans to de­velop its Chris­tian wit­ness. The Rev Dan Tyn­dall, who has just com­pleted his first year there, says while proud of their church’s iconic sta­tus on the Bris­tol tourist trail, the con­gre­ga­tion is keen to en­sure that they main­tain their role as a par­ish church that serves the people liv­ing within the shadow of its spire. “Our pur­pose in life – to be a beacon of the King­dom of God and share God’s love – is not some dusty phrase plucked from a prayer book but a down-to-earth de­scrip­tion of the type of prac­ti­cal sup­port we are giv­ing to people in one of the most de­prived parts of our city,” said Mr Tyn­dall.
