THE congregation of  Christ Church Downend is on the move.

Worshippers will hold their main Sunday morning services at Christ Church Junior School from November 12 while work is carried out on the 186-year-old church.

A spokesman said: "Our children’s groups and youth group are able to be accommodated there, and we will be able to enjoy a flexible space with excellent accessibility. We hope some who are a bit daunted by a big old fashioned church might feel more comfortable trying us out in this new venue."

Headteacher Pippa Osborne said: “We are delighted to be working closely with Christ Church. We already have excellent links between the school and the church, but this will encourage these links to be strengthened and extended.”

Sunday evening services  and some groups  will be moved to the Parish Hall.
