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

Worship Service Times & Styles

We worship together on Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m in the Sanctuary in Avon. There's also a service at 10:30 a.m. at the Avon Campus in The Venue. There are communal dinners on most Saturday and Tuesday evenings at the Avon Campus. We also meet as small groups and classes throughout the week.  We look forward to meeting you.

Bristol: 718 Pine Street, Bristol Connecticut. We meet at Greene-Hills School in Bristol.

Children & Students

We encourage families to worship together on the weekend, and then choose children's programs and communities for middle school and high school students. During the week, we offer age-specific clubs and gatherings for children, middle school and high school students

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.


At Valley Community Baptist Church, we value knowing the truth of God and obeying His Word. Senior Pastor Jay Abramson is the lead teaching pastor. We invite you to listen to the latest sermon series.

Summer Nights


1) What if the weather is poor?

The sides of the rink are open, but a roof covers the rink, allowing us to meet regardless. If there are major thunderstorms or other conditions that force a change in schedule, we'll alert you via email, the website, Facebook group, and text alert.

2) What should I expect at the worship service?

Our live band leads us in worship songs, followed by a testimony and message from Pastor Mark or a guest speaker. Please bring a lawn chair, camp chair, or something comfortable to sit in. If you don't have chairs, that's OK - we have some extras.

3) What about the kids?

There is a preschool environment for kids 4 and under, overseen by Valley Simsbury staff. Everyone who serves our kids goes through our KidSafe process, which includes a background check. Kindergarten-Grade 5 kids have the option of attending a breakout session designed for them -- they will be dismissed to that session before the teaching begins. Kids are welcome to stay with their parents or attend the breakout session. Everyone who serves our kids has passed Valley's KidSage process, which includes a formal background check.

4) Who is welcome?

Everyone! "Summer Nights" is a great environment for friends, family, or neighbors who are curious about God and faith. Friends from other churches are also welcome to join us!

5) How can I serve?

We would love for you to share your talents and time to help make "Summer Nights" a great worship experience. Whether you are a musician, like to work with food or welcome newcomers, or would be interested in serving in our children's programs, please email simsbury@valleycommunity.cc, and we'll help you get connected.

6) What if I have more questions?

Email us at simsbury@valleycommunity.cc, and we will followu p as soon as possible. Or just come join us at Simsbury Farms and look for someone wearing a lanyard that says "Connect." They'll be happy to answer your questions!
