Foundation is a Christian contemplative and radical community in Bristol, within the Anglican tradition. Our worship is shaped by ancient and contemporary sources, ranging from monastic and mystical traditions to tech-enabled experimental reflections. We also look to the Greenbelt festival for inspiration, and especially its emphasis on faith, arts and justice.

We meet for our Sunday evening service at 7.30pm at Cotham Parish Church, Cotham Road, Bristol BS6 6DR. The service is followed by conversation over drinks in our donation bar.

On the first and third Sundays of each month the services are "Rest" and "Table" (Holy Communion). These draw on ancient patterns of worship, taking inspiration from the Taize and Iona communities.


In other weeks we host "Create", a free-form service led by members of the group, including live jazz and ambient soundscapes, and finally a multimedia alt.worship "Last Sunday" service.
