Welcome to Freedom Church Cheltenham! We embrace all, forming a diverse, loving family. Our passion is to help people thrive through a personal, transformative relationship with Jesus. Whether young or old, believer or unsure, there's something for everyone.

We believe the gospel is alive and relevant, bringing excitement and abundant life. As followers of Jesus, we're called to grow, explore, and bear fruit by loving God and others. Community is vital to us; we're not meant to walk alone. Our pursuit is to live fully, leaving a lasting impact by having audacious faith, trusting God's character, honoring others, expressing gratitude, and reflecting Jesus to the world.

We are Freedom Church Cheltenham.

Our Pastors

Meet Andy and Em, our Campus Pastors! Andy, originally from Hull and Em, originally from Herefordshire, joined Freedom Church in 2011 and consequently relocated from the North back down South to Hereford.

Andy and Em are supported by a number of leaders within the Campus who oversee different areas of the Church, from Worship and Volunteering, to Zeal and Kids.
