About St. Helen’s Church

St Helen’s Anglican Church in Alveston is part of the Severnside Group of Churches.

Following some long term planning by the Diocese after the retirement in 2015 of Rev. Dave Pole some reorganisation has taken place linking the five churches in North Severnside.

Alveston, Elberton, Littleton, Olveston and Aust have now combined to make the new benefice of North Severnside.

St Helen's Church

The ruins of the original church with Saxon origins can be seen close to the B4427 on the road between Rudgeway and Earthcott Green.

The “new” St Helen’s Church was consecrated in 1885 and there is a Church of England VC Primary School adjacent to us.

We work closely with the pupils by acting out “Open the Book” Bible stories with them during assemblies most weeks and regularly leading their special services.

Hospitality is important to us. With Christ as our head we seek to create a community where all feel loved, accepted and valued.

We welcome both our regular congregations and visitors and serve the wider parish through our Church life – through pastoral care, occasional offices or service and involvement in the wider community life, and activities such as lunch & knitting clubs, and art & walking groups.

Our monthly range of worship is both traditional and contemporary - from Book of Common Prayer through Common Worship and Taize services.

Encouraging more young people is important and we offer regular All Age Services with special activities to include children. We aim to be a friendly and inclusive church where everyone can find a home.

St Helen’s would like to see its premises used by the local community.

As we have 're-ordered' our church by removing the pews we can provide a large open area for your concerts, meetings or events, with seating for up to 150 persons and a number of large and round tables. There is a kitchen for light refreshments and a toilet which has disabled access and baby changing facilities.
