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

This June, it will be 70 years since the Empire Windrush arrived in the UK from Jamaica. In Bath, Christ Church was the church which welcomed those West Indians who arrived from 1948 onwards.

At the request of the Caribbean community our 10am Eucharist on 24th June will have a Caribbean flavour. The Rainbow Steel Band, one of the oldest steel band in the country, will play. The service will be followed by 30 minutes of poems and memories from the the Caribbean community, then from 12:00-2.30pm there will be a BBQ.

Music is a fundamentally important part of the life of Christ Church. We maintain a high standard of liturgical music in worship, led by a very capable, successful and active choir of around 25 singers, and we host concerts for both visiting and local groups. We would like to use the organ much more for concert work, but its recent poor condition has meant this hasn’t been possible. In early 2017 a large, heavy section of plaster fell from the wall above the organ, denting a large number of pipes, filling the organ chamber with plaster dust, and damaging some of the electrical components, making a lot of the instrument unusable.

Tired of sitting about wishing you were fitter? Thinner? More active? Ate more healthily? Did more interesting things?

The goal of this new prayer initiative is to form at least one ‘Community House of Prayer’ in every council ward in our city and area and to gather in small monthly meetings to pray for our neighbours and communities right where we live.
