There are many ways to worship across Bath with the Methodist Church. Some traditional, others in new settings or exploring new ways of sharing worship together.
Sunday In Person
Subject to Government regulations, we have Covid-safe worship across our church sites. In the city, there’s worship in one church each Sunday morning on rotation. In the village churches in Box & Bathampton, they follow their own pattern of worship. Some churches need you to book in in advance, so check with the church before attending.
A weekly service on Zoom and paper continues for the whole Mission Area.
Online (and paper)
Since Easter Sunday 2020, people from across the city and beyond have been gathering together on Zoom for worship and fellowship each Sunday morning. The worship is straightforward and engaging and you can sing along at home as loud as you like. There’s some chat beforehand and small groups afterwards to get to know each other better too. You can also receive a written copy of the service by email or post. More details…
A range of other activities from contemplations to Bible studies also happen online.On Friday mornings, Prayers In & Around Bath is a 20-minute service of prayer and reflection, with opportunities to pray for the city and area and also link to A Methodist Way of Life. (Currently paused – resuming in September)
