Welcome to

The Church

Situated inside a dramatic fifteenth century church in Bristol’s St. Werburgh’s, you’ll find one of the UK’s original roped climbing centres. With walls up to 12m high and dedicated top-roping and lead climbing areas, The Church is the ideal centre for climbers of all abilities. So whether you want to start a climbing journey from scratch or improve your technique, The Church has been designed to provide you with everything you need.

If you’re an established climber you can just come in, sign up and you’re off. If you’ve not climbed before, you’ll need to do one of our beginner courses.
