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".
What to Expect
We have two identical services - one at 5pm, the other at 7pm. Doors open half an hour before each service, with coffee and donuts on hand. The services last around 80 minutes or so and feature 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.
