New Diocesan Office open for business

The Diocesan Office has now moved from Church House and the All Saints Centre in Bristol to Hillside House in Stoke Gifford to the north of Bristol.

The address of the new Diocesan Office is:
First Floor, Hillside House,
1500 Parkway North,
Stoke Gifford,
Bristol BS34 8YU.

Our main telephone remainsĀ 0117 906 0100.

The Resource Centre, which has educational, children and youth resources, has become split site both at the All Saints Centre (open weekdays 12noon to 5pm) and at Hillside House.

The move ran smoothly with the main disruption to electronic and telephone communication limited to either side of the August Bank Holiday weekend. All departments are now full functioning and, although some teething issues are to be expected, we hope now to be offering parishes and ministers a full service.

The relocation was part of the Diocesan Strategy and places diocesan support services and staff in an accessible position for the whole Diocese. There is on-site parking, and the office provides meeting room facilities for the whole diocese and an open plan working environment all on one floor. Already it is aiding interdepartmental communication, helping foster a more efficient and joined up environment.

Hillside House is located on the Parkway North business park, 10 to 15 minutes walk from Bristol Parkway station and close to the M5, M4, M32 and Bristol Ring Road. Later in the autumn, there will be a couple of open days when those from the Diocese can visit.

The decision to relocate was progressed by the Diocesan Synod following Deanery Synod motions and costs of leasing the office will neither be funded from Parish Share nor will it affect expenditure on parochial clergy and support.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
