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.


Middle School

Middle Schoolers: Come join a group that has been formed and fashioned completely for you! At Valley's Avon Campus, you and your friends can come together, be yourselves, have fun, and get to know God.

Every week, over 130 students (Grades 6-8) just like you gather from all over. We meet for Amp40 and Amp70 on Sundays and for Riot on Wednesdays (during the school year). And if you're a part of the Student Ministry Team (SMT), we meet monthly. 

Check out the Upcoming Events page for the current schedule.

Wednesday Nights (during the school year) | 7-8:45 p.m. | Avon Campus | Fellowship Hall
