GVC History

Gordano Valley Church (GVC) began in September 1990 and is a church without links to any particular denomination.  The initial congregation comprised people from all sorts of Christian backgrounds and many with no particular church affiliation.


In 1994, the church joined with another similar congregation in town called Highdown Church.  GVC is an evangelical and charismatic church and we do place a high value on unity and co-operation with other churches in Portishead.  We take the Bible as our authority for what we believe, how we live and how we should celebrate as church.


The legal entity of the church is an unincorporated trust called Gordano Valley Church Trust which is governed by its Trustees.  We are a registered charity, Registered Charity No. 1152104, a member of the national Evangelical Alliance and a member of the Muller Partnership of churches.  We take the Evangelical Alliance Basis of Faith as the  basic statement of faith that we hold and to which we would expect all members to adhere.
