Welcome to Holy Apostles
Holy Apostles strives to be a genuinely family-friendly and welcoming church, accepting people for who they are and where they are at. Worshipping God is central to what we do. We also aspire to support and encourage each other in our spiritual lives as we share God’s love within our communities and wherever we live out our faith seven days a week.
The church family encompasses people of all ages from both within the parish and the wider surrounding area, and we are a mix of people, from those who have been Christians for decades, to others who are just testing the waters of faith. We are all still rough around the edges but feel Holy Apostles is a perfect place for imperfect people. At the moment you can join us on Facebook if you search for HA Cheltenham, or click facebook.com/HACheltenham

How are we planning to deal with the new recommendations for
meeting in person over the summer?
We are now back in the church building for for services. But we are taking things slowly. There are still some restrictions we encourage people to observe (masks, social distancing, track and trace), but for those who are ready to start to connect again we'd love to have you join us on site. After each service coffee/tea is available and we have a covered outside seating area where people can catch up. We record a talk each week which goes out at 10 am each Sunday morning on YouTube along with a video of our latest news and notices. Our last three YouTube Sundays are linked to at the bottom of this page.
- 9.00 am Sunday morning is an "in person" service in the church building that lasts around 45 minutes and includes communion on the first Sunday of each month. There are no children's groups at the 9am service but we are a family friendly church and all ages are always welcome.
- 10.30 am Sunday morning we have a second "in person" service in the church building. This service currently lasts around an hour. This service will normally have children's groups for different ages during school term times.
At the moment we encourage you to book in advance for these services but you can just turn up. To reserve a seat contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 10.00 am Sunday morning we have a video talk on our YouTube channel.
- 10.00 am every Monday and Thursday morning throughout the current time we have a live video "Coffee Morning Prayer" on our Facebook page facebook.com/HACheltenham. Around 25 minutes of prayer and unpacking a passage from the Bible.
