Our Ministries


Mission is the living out of our faith in the world, bringing the love of god to humanity through prayer and action. We place great emphasis on three means of doing this: Hospitality, Generosity, Inclusion.


Our church door is nearly always open during the day (10 till 4) and we welcome all comers to our two main occasions each week.


Eucharist comes from the Greek and means offer graciously. Holy Communion is available to all.


We are lucky enough to have an ancient and absolutely beautiful church which we wish as many as possible to enjoy, whether christian or not. We have strong links with ‘Living Springs’, the LGBT church in Bath, and are looking for ways to share our ministry.  We are now Dementia Friendly too

About Us

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.
