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

With social distancing limiting our numbers at the moment, we find ourselves having to have tickets for our carol serivce. They're free - we wouldn't dream of charging people to attend a service! - it's simply to that we can manage the numbers planning to come.  This isn't something we want to do, and we really hope we will be able to accommodate *everyone* who wants to come. Were using Eventbrite to manage the tickets - see the link just below.  Please book early to avoid disappointment!

Updated 9th November 2020

Following the announcement of a second lockdown period from 5th November to 2nd December, we will not be able to hold public services in church during this time. We will return to streaming the Sunday and Thursday services via the official Christ Church Facebook page:

In an open letter to nation, The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and Bishop of London have called the Church of England to pray for the nation at 6pm each day throughout lockdown. There are a variety of resources available on the Church of England website which you may find helpful, or you may wish to use the Christ Church Prayer Cycle as to provide a theme for your prayer each day.


‘Prayer in time of coronavirus’. candle

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.

 

USPG
We are supporting USPG and their Malawi project again during November. These are some of the highlights of recent work there:

- 1,006 girls have been directly supported with their education through the programme, out of which 854 have received learning materials.

- 7,710 trees have been planted around community small holdings to reduce soil erosion and provide fruit, and 84% of households participated in environmental training and campaigns.

- 4,944 people have had their livelihoods improved through the development of their small holdings. 96% participated in training on business management and are using their acquired skills.

- 88% of participants in the livelihoods programme have had an increase in farm produce and 74% have had an increase in food security.

- Uptake of Voluntary Counselling and Testing services for HIV has increased to 94%, compared to 72% in the first few years of the programme.

If you would like to make a donation you can do that at www.uspg.org.uk/donate. You will be able to specify that this is for the Partners in Mission programme in Malawi, and can also state that you are a member of Christ Church Bath. This will enable them to collate all our donations and let us know the annual total of our gifts.

If you would like to read their half yearly report in full, you can do so here.
