Welcome

Welcome to Valley Community Baptist Church. We are one church in multiple locations with campuses in Avon and Bristol, CT. Our mission is to honor God and grow in Christ by worshipping God, equipping believers, bringing people to Christ and serving our neighbors. We would be honored to have you join us

There are also special events like summer camps, student retreats and the family summit that will help children and parents grow in their relationships with each other and God.

Care & Counseling

At Valley, we know that life can be painful and life can be joyful. People experience a wide range of life transitions, so we're here to offer support and encouragement in both the happy and the difficult times. Valley's Care Ministry is designed to provide strong support to those in need. 

You don't have to be a member of Valley to receive help and guidance. People of all faiths have benefited from the programs and resources available here. Our desire is for everyone to experience hope and healing in times of brokenness.
