A liberal & inclusive church, seeking God through beauty in our worship, honesty in our faith & doubt, & service in our community

In 2005 the Bishop of Bath and Wells launched an initiative to set up Local Ministry Groups (LMGs) throughout the diocese. Christ Church formed an LMG with our neighbours at St. Stephen's Church, Lansdown, and Charlcombe Parish Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We were enthusiastic supporters of this initiative, and the North Bath LMG was amongst the first to be formed in the diocese. It would be fair to say that we had no preconceived ideas about what the formation of the LMG would mean, other than a feeling that there would be ways in which we could work and grow together that would make us greater than the sum of our parts.

Since the formation of the group, we have held regular joint services at each other’s churches and been on weekends away together. The ministers of the three churches regularly preside and preach at the other churches in the LMG. We are still seeking ways of working more effectively together.
