Our Bristol Hub was born out of partnership with Woodlands Church. We mutually share a vision to be continually reproducing the life of Jesus in the people around us. Our Bristol Hub has become a vibrant, multicultural place which reflects city life and welcomes anyone who wants to go deeper in their faith, ask a lot of questions, and is not afraid of the messiness that often comes navigating life as a Christian in the 21st century.
Woodlands is situated in central Bristol, not far from the University, and is close to both good train and bus routes as well as some excellent road networks. We are now taking applications for the 2018-19 academic year. Want to find out more about what it is like to journey with us? We’d love to hear from you. Please do .
The Bristol Hub meets on Monday evenings between 6pm and 10pm.
Matt Dobson is our Bristol Hub Director. Matt leads a Pastorate at Woodlands Church and prior to joining WTC, he was the Assistant Manager for the Bristol International Student Centre. He has also worked with Christian Aid as a Youth and Student support worker, so is an expert at what it means to support students! Matt’s passion is to facilitate communities that want to deepen their knowledge and experience of the Kingdom of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. Having seen and experienced the transformative power of Jesus in both his own life and the life of others, he is excited to see more of this transformation take place in the life of WTC students in the Bristol Hub and to see the impact beyond that this will have.
Woodlands Christian Centre
There is limited free parking on Woodland Road, apart from on weekdays between 9am and 5pm, when it’s Pay & Display. However, on weekends and evenings (after 6pm) access to the car park of the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital is available for use. The entrance is off Tyndall’s Park Road and the car park is to the left. Steps lead down from the car park directly onto Woodland Road. The nearest other public car park is just up Whiteladies Road in Clifton Down Shopping Centre, about a three minute walk away.
There are also regular buses, with the nearest stops being outside BBC Broadcasting House on Whiteladies Road.
The church is on a signed cycle route from the city centre to the Durdham Downs, and there are bike racks provided by the main entrance.
