This is our completely revised homepage, full of links to ideas for worship during these exceptional times.
From Rev. Elizabeth:
“As a part of the Bath Mission Area and considering the government’s recent proposal for the path out of lockdown, we feel that it is best for us to reopen after May 17th. We will return to the model of opening each of the more central Bath churches once a month, continuing this pattern through to the end of August as well as having a weekly Zoom service.”
Scroll down for further info on the Zoom services.
Box will continue the 2nd and 4th Sunday pattern,
with our first physical service on 24th May.
We are pleased to confirm the appointment of
Rev. Dr. Simon Topping in succession to Rev. Elizabeth Kirova, who will be leaving us in August 2021. Simon will be leading us from September 2021. Read his letter to us here

We are grateful to our sisters and brothers around the world who hold us in prayer as we hold them. We should not be afraid “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.
We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for other
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.
Holy God, we remember that you have promised that
Nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ.
Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you.
