New Creation Churches Building Better Community


Who and what is NEW CREATION??????

New Creation is a family of four churches covering Banwell, Congresbury and Puxton.

Our purpose? Building Better Community.

How? By bringing Christ’s light to the heart of it.

We’re always looking for new and exciting ways to share in fellowship whilst being a pillar of support when needed.


New Creation formed as the two Anglican and two Methodist churches in the villages of Banwell and Congresbury in January 2014. There is also a simple historic church building and ‘haven for prayer’ at Puxton.


Our ethos is central to our life together. We seek to live close to the person of Jesus Christ as an inclusive group of Christians from many different backgrounds, experiences and traditions with the common aim of seeking to “build a better community” in the local communities of which we are part. The idea of living relationally with God, with each other and with the physical world around us, together with the Bible stories of a “New Creation”, (Galatians 6:14-16), otherwise known as “God’s Kingdom”, inspire us greatly and these are the bedrock for our collective name and vision, “New Creation”.

New Creation takes the wellbeing and safety of the children and vulnerable adults attending our churches very seriously.  If you wish to raise a safeguarding concern please contact the Safeguarding Officer in your church as listed at the bottom of our  Safeguarding Policy, or contact New Creation’s Safeguarding Officer, Dennis Cruze, via the Banwell Church Office on 01934 822858.  Alternatively you can contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team on 01749 685135 and find more information on their website:
