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

Each weekend, there are six worship services in two locations: Sundays at 10 a.m. at Greene-Hills School in Bristol. Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 8, 9:30, and 11:15 a.m in the Sanctuary in Avon. There's also a service at 11:15 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.


High School

If you are in Grades 9-12, come check out Valley High School gatherings, where you will experience strong friendships and build lasting memories. No matter what your background, come and connect with people your own age, whether it's at Synergy, in Life Groups, or at Sunday Morning Community. You will find different levels of faith and different ways to live out your faith.

Check out the Upcoming Events page for the current schedule.


High School Summer Events 

These Summer Events are for all high school students, including those entering grade 9 and those who have just graduated

August 2: High School students and their friends are invited for a fun night of swimming, food and hanging out at the home of Nick and Erica Gilbert, 43 Craigmore Circle, Avon. There is no cost for this event, however, if you plan to swim, a parent must fill out and sign a release form. You can pick up a form outside of the Student Ministry office, or click here.

High School Student Impact Prep Retreat

Thursday, August 10-Friday, August 11

This retreat is for high school students who want to go the second mile in their walk with God. Students who want to be known by their  love, who want to go deep. Students who want to live by faith and be the church rather than just go to church. Students who are ready to commit to a team that will make High School Ministry and our church ministry more exciting and effective. You will spend this time together beginning ministry preparations for the coming year, preparing your heart, and uniting with God's heart, sharpening your skills to a specific service area, and, of course, having some ridiculously fun times with other students who want to make an impact. Register for this retreat here.
