Woodlands METRO is a vibrant and growing city centre church, meeting in the heart of Bristol.
We launched in September 2015, as a campus of Woodlands Church, and now meet every Sunday evening in 'We the Curious', Bristol's city centre science museum.
All kinds of people are part of Metro but most of us fit into the 18 to 35 age bracket, with a large number of students and urban professionals. We don't make any assumptions about a person's faith - or lack of it. Instead, we create experiences that work for everyone.
It's church you can bring your friend to.
Our vision as a church is "to help people FIND Jesus and LOVE one another, then FOLLOW Jesus and SERVE their city".
Our Alpha Courses are designed to help people explore faith in Jesus
Our mid-week Hubs help people become part of an authentic community
Our mentoring friendships help people develop as disciples of Jesus
Our social action and community partners help people serve the city
What to Expect
Doors open from 6.30pm, with coffee and donuts on hand before our 7pm start. The service lasts around 80 minutes or so and features an engaging talk, singing led by a band, and other creative items, such as video, interviews and the odd interactive element.
The feel is informal and inclusive and we aim for everything that we do to be 'real, relevant and refreshing'. In other words, it's got to be authentic, it's got to relate to all of life and it's got to leave you feeling good.
There's a very strong sense of welcome and friendship and afterwards there's always the offer of a post-service drink.
