A warm welcome to the Parish Church of the Holy Nativity, Knowle in Bristol. We are a Church of England Parish of a modern Catholic tradition in the Diocese of Bristol. Inside Holy Nativity, you’ll find daily worship, a welcoming, supportive community, and space for personal prayer and reflection. Our mission is to seek to be 'open to God, open to each other, open to the community.' With its distinctive green copper spire, the parish church of the Holy Nativity is visible from many places in Bristol. Just 15 minutes walk from Bristol Temple Meads railway station and located on the A37 Wells Road, the beautiful church of the Holy Nativity, Knowle was first consecrated in 1883 to serve the growing population of Knowle and Totterdown. This church was to replace the Chapel of the Holy Nativity, a plain structure of wood, that had been built previously in July 1865. During the first heavy Blitz on Bristol of the Second World War, the original church building was badly damaged. Rebuilding of the church was completed in 1958. Work was then undertaken in 2004 to completely redecorate the church. As part of this work, talented local artist Mike Long completed the stunning apse mural. We recently celebrated 150 years of Christian witness at Holy Nativity, Knowle.
