That word “Welcome” is more than just a simple greeting. It literally means – “It’s a pleasure to receive you as our guest.” That is precisely what we, as a church, want to say to you. Whether you’ve been around in Bath long enough to call yourself a true Bathonian, or you’re setting up home for the first time in our city, or you’re just planning to be here for a year or two before moving on, we would love to receive you as our guest.
Jesus said one time, “Everyone that the Father has given me will come to me, and I won’t turn any of them away”. Such is the welcome of the God we worship and serve; the God we aim to follow as a church. We want to reflect and imitate him.
So please check out our website and find out what is going on in the life of our church. There is something for all ages. We would love for you to come along, meet us and find out more. What’s more we would be delighted to help you in any way we can.
Our hope and prayer is that you may want to become more than a guest; that you might even like to become part of the community here as we worship, serve and follow Jesus together. But for now, why not simply pay us a visit.
You’re very welcome!
It's that time in the year again when we're looking forward to welcoming students to Bath whether for the first time or to continue their studies. As a church we always extend a warm welcome and as part of that welcome again this year a number of our church members are geared up to host students for lunch in their homes from the end of September and into October.
Students,we’d love to know more about what you think God’s got in store for you in your Uni years. Maybe you have a talent that’s itching to be released into the church. Maybe you’re a Prayer Warrior, or a Youth leader or a Worship leader or an Evangelist . . . Alternately maybe you need a community of Christians to support you in prayer and discipleship through the challenges of the Uni years. We’d love to know how we can help you to experience deeply and richly God’s plan for your life.
Why not come along and meet us on a Sunday morning at 10.30am. We would love to meet you and get to know you and support you in any way that we can while you're in Bath
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a chance to explore and question the meaning of life. Over a series of about ten sessions, you’ll find out about the basics of the Christian faith and how it provides answers to these questions. Each session involves a main talk and a time to discuss what you've heard and share what you think. There's always food and drink involved and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. What's more it's all free. Maybe that’s why over 22.5 million people worldwide have already tried Alpha.
When is Alpha?
We have run Alpha twice in the last couple of years during the first few weeks of the New Year. As members of the church build relationships with people either outside of the life of the church or through regular activities which we run as a church we find some of those we're meeting want to dig a bit deeper and think more about the Christian faith and how it answers life's big questions and is relelvant to their lives. If you fancy giving Alpha a try please get in touch with our Minister, Mark, or our Community Outreach Worker, Paul through the Contact Us area of our website. Or just keep an eye on our home page for the next course.
