Welcome to Bolton Villas Family Church!
Whether you are already a part of our church family or if you are just looking, we hope you have a great time with us. We are a family-friendly church based in Bradford in the U.K. that longs to follow Jesus Christ in all aspects of our being.
We want to be a family travelling this road of life together. We are a family of all ages and backgrounds, a community with Kingdom values, hopes and dreams. Wherever you come from, whatever background you may have, YOU are WELCOME at Bolton Villas.
We seek to be ‘JESUS PEOPLE’ – We want to Talk to Jesus, Walk with Jesus, Share Jesus, Invite others to meet Jesus and Live the Jesus way.
We all make mistakes, but we firmly believe life is better with God’s love and guidance. We hope to share that love with each other on our journey as His family together.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)
You are very welcome to join us on Sunday mornings from 10.30am, our family service includes activities for creche, children and young people.

Coronavirus – Covid 19 Update
The Elders, following the UK Government’s recent guidance which permits places of worship to re-open from early July 2020, have decided that we will not be opening at this time. We will however be reviewing the situation regularly and will be actively working towards a potential re-opening of our church no earlier than September 2020.
There are many reasons behind this, one of which is that is clear to us as Elders and Trustees that we need to ensure we can adhere to all relevant regulations and guidance published by both the Government and the United Reformed Church. We have a duty of care not only to the whole of our church family, but also to the many visitors and volunteers who come into our church building either on a Sunday or during the week, either whilst visiting Refreshed or coming to one of the groups which meets on our premises.
More importantly, we also feel that God has been speaking to us during this time of lockdown. As such we firmly believe that we should not rush into returning to normal, we need to take time to ensure we are following the path God has laid down for us here at Bolton Villas. It is for these reasons that we feel we need to take slow, careful steps towards re-opening.
We very much hope that you will join us for our online Sunday services, and that you will pray with us for God to reveal how Bolton Villas Family Church should move forward.
