Together4Bristol (T4B) is a growing movement of churches, prayer groups and networks across the 'whole of life', to help the Christian community be good news for the Bristol region. Click to read more...
Open to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we long to increase unity and cooperation between churches and across the Christian community and to help them make a difference in the Bristol region.
We long to see every Christian released to be good news in the whole of life, or 'spheres of life', in the Bristol region - Arts, Business and Workplace, Education and Young People, Family, Media, Politics and Social Action, Sport, and Health.
This is a move of the Spirit. All over the globe Church and Christian leaders in the cultural spheres are coming together in... unity for mission movements... seeking God in prayer and working together for the social, cultural and spiritual transformation of their cities and towns.

Transforming Bristol Together
Being good news for the Bristol region
Out of our unity we long to see...
the WHOLE Christian community
working together in prayer, prophetic action and proclamation of Jesus Christ,
to help spread the Kingdom of God in the WHOLE of life in the Bristol region.
WHOLE Christian community, WHOLE of life
Relate with ALL
To build relationships is key: with God and across the whole Christian community.
To help reconcile the whole Christian community, to learn from God and each other, and to equip whole-life missional disciples.
To help release every Christian to bring the good news of Jesus Christ, in word and deed, to individuals and to every aspect of society.
Jesus came “to bring life in ALL its fullness” (John 10:10) and to “reconcile ALL things to himself” (Colossians 1:20). He calls us to “make disciples of ALL nations” (Matthew 28:19) and to “seek the peace and prosperity of the city...” (Jeremiah 29:7)
"There is one body and one Spirit...one Lord, one faith...one God and Father of ALL, who is over ALL and through ALL" (Ephesians 4:4)
The Bristol Networks website helps improve communications and connections within the Christian community in the Bristol region.
It also has Directories of Churches, Organisations and Businesses and many other features.
The website helps raise the visibility of the Christian community (eg with the councils, police and media) and tells stories of the positive change happening in the region.
A key value is to help connect across all Christians and others for positive change in all spheres of life in the Bristol region and beyond.
GATHER is a national network of over 120 vibrant “unity for mission movements”, such as Together4Bristol, in villages, towns, cities and boroughs across the UK.
As Roger Sutton, the leader of the GATHER movement says, “This is a move of the Spirit. All over the globe Church and Christian leaders in the cultural spheres are coming together in... unity for mission movements... seeking God in prayer and working together for the social, cultural and spiritual transformation of their cities and towns.”
GATHER is about transformation. To achieve this, the Church needs to get involved with every sphere of society. GATHER is developing eight key cultural spheres, providing a range of resources and networking opportunities in each sphere.
As Jesus prayed: “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me.” John 17:23
