Domi would like to say thank you...
"On behalf of Dean, myself and the whole family I would like to express our deep gratitude for the prayers, love and kindness that we have all received whilst I worked at St Swithin’s and in Snow Hill.
We greatly appreciated the goodbye BBQ and party at The Gateway. Dean and I were totally overwhelmed by the lovely gifts; two enormous hampers of goodies from Snow Hill and the generous gift of a holiday. After much deliberation we are planning to visit Portugal in December.
My new role will start at the end of December (God willing) and I will continue to worship at St Swithin’s so look forward to seeing you in the pews soon.
Much love Domi, Dean and Family."
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore life and faith, ask questions and share their point of view.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith and it runs all around the globe.
How Does It Work?
Alpha is ten sessions including the option of a day away, or seven without. Each session includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts and questions. At any point, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

Welcome to Bath! Please visit us or say hi at any time. Let us know if there is anything we can help with or pray for. Here's a little bit more information about students at St Swithin's...
There are plenty of opportunities to join God's people from across Bath as we unite in prayer for our city. One of which is CHOPs (Community Houses of Prayer), which meet monthly across the city to contend for God's Kingdom to come and for the wellbeing, transformation and renewal of our city. They are also having a conference in just a couple of weeks.

We will meet up at the Marlborough Tavern at 7:30pm on the other Sundays of the month to hang out, meet new people and build friendships.
Our quiet evening communion service will continue on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at church at 6:30pm.

Prayer is the most powerful, transformative force in the universe. So what if we partnered to unleash God’s Kingdom on our campuses?”
