Join us this Sunday as we celebrate and give thanks to God for Domi and for all that God has done through her in her time at St Swithin's and the Gateway Centre, pray for her exiting new venture and say the fondest of farewells.
Please let the office know if you plan to come to the BBQ to say goodbye to Domi. It would be helpful to know if you're thinking of bringing a salad or desert too.
If you would like to give something towards a gift for Domi please put cash/cheques (payable to Walcot PCC) in a brown envelope, marked with Domi's name in the collection box at the back of church.

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?”
