Quiet Garden Afternoons
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am. Be still and know.
The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Charlcombe is the oldest church in Bath still with regular worship. It has welcomed people for a thousand years. The building and garden are places of great peace, offering space and refreshment.
Generally on the third Tuesday afternoon of each of the summer months there is a led Quiet Afternoon. Each leader will bring thoughts and reflections within which to contemplate and pray in the beauty of the garden.

We are a small country church community in a vibrant city – and yet only 10 minute drive from the centre.
The church is generally open every day from 10-4 and is lovely place to sit quietly – perhaps as part of a country walk. You are welcome to morning prayers on a Tuesday at 9am, which is quite a solemn and intimate occasion, or come and sample our communion on Sunday mornings when the church is pretty full – we would be delighted to welcome you.
