Enjoy Church Portishead


Chris & Sarah James are our Senior Pastors of Enjoy Church. They have been married for over 20 years and have four children Joel, Caleb, Ezekiel and Phoebe. They are passionate about living life to the full, and empower others to do the same.

In May 2010, they began the journey of pioneering what is known as Enjoy Church.

Enjoy Church has grown from 6 people to strong worshipping community which is gathering people for North Somerset and Bristol.

Together they love building church, going on family adventures and spending time with their friends.



“Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.” Habakkuk 3:2




Is to show people who Jesus is! Enjoy Church believe that if you are seeking a life changing encounter with God then this revelation is fond in who Jesus is. As John 1:4 – 18 sayssays, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. . . . We see God by seeing Jesus.



Are the following: Tangible presence, Authentic discipleship, and Sacrificial mission 

Values statement. We fulfill our vision by pursuing the tangible presence and power of God, practicing authentic discipleship in the ways of Jesus, and living on a sacrificial mission for the transformation of society. 



We believe that prayer is the heartbeat of Enjoy Church. As we prayer, we encounter the power and presence of God. Prayer simply transforms us, our church community, and God’s world.

We are practicing counter-formation by learning how to walk daily in the way of Jesus, and not in the ways of the world.



Community groups offers us all a chance to participate in God’s church and use our gifts in the strengthening of one another, allowing us to pursue the adventure of faith together and show the world who Jesus is.

We believe that giving is part of our worship. It shouldn’t be something we do out of a sense of duty or persuasion. Generosity is a natural response when we encounter the generosity that God has poured on us.
