Seeking God together in Bath & beyond

about us.

Bath was the fourth place to have a Methodist Society in 1741 and there have been many Methodist churches in the area since then. There are now six churches  and several other communities which form the Bath Mission Area of the North East Somerset & Bath Circuit. Get to know us a little here or get in touch so we can get to know you.

Some things you might want to know


The Methodist Church is a Connexional church covering the whole of Great Britain. The six churches in the Bath Mission Area work together and with others in North Somerset in a Circuit and as part of the Bristol District. We’re also part of the Learning Network South West. We also try to work with other churches in Bath where we can.


Online and Offline

We like to gather together in person when we can, but have been learning how to do community online too. We’ve been using Zoom for worship and small groups and will be streaming services from our buildings soon.


Looking to the Future

Methodism is an historic denomination, but we’re looking to make a difference here and now. Many of John Wesley’s principles are still very relevant to today.

As followers of Jesus, we’re all about people, finding ways to grow, learn and develop together following his example and teaching.
