And the 20-year-old is hopeful of being in contention for a starting berth on Saturday.
Church told the official website: "There's been a big improvement since last week, I couldn't really walk properly at first. Hopefully I will get there and be ready for Saturday.
"I went for a jog on the Thursday before (the Scunthorpe match), I couldn't get enough motion going so I knew then.
"But I've made good progress so I'm hopeful for Bristol."
