Amazing news. We (churches in Bath) have just been given a city centre prayer hub for 24-7 prayer for the city. Located in the old small chapel at the rear of the Abbey in the very heart of the city, it is perfect. What a blessing. The launch of 24-7 prayer for the city will be in the Abbey on Tuesday 24th May at 7.30pm. More details to follow.
Genesis will be holding a prayer walk on Saturday 21st May with Bath Abbey and several churches on route. For more information and to sign up please go to https://genesistrust.org.uk/events/ .
Join with millions of Christians all around the world as we intercede and cry out for peace in Ukraine.
24-7 Prayer, among other organisations, have created some really helpful resources and suggestions for how to pray for Ukraine. Please follow the link below to find out more.
You are welcome to join us for monthly midweek communions at midday. The dates for the next couple of months are the 10th February and the 3rd March. Afterwards, we will be gathering on the first Wednesday of every month where circumstances allow.
On these particular Wednesdays, Open Space (when we open for private prayer) will start at the slightly later time of 12:30pm.
Please follow all social distancing measures in place.
We are delighted that after comprehensive preparations, following Church of England and Diocesan guidelines, we are opening the doors of St Swithin’s Church for people to come in for private prayer at a safe physical distance on Wednesdays from 12noon - 2pm.
In order to keep you and everyone else safe please take careful note of the following points:
OPEN SPACE IS NOW POSTPONED
In light of current events our building is currently completely closed. We would love to have our space open for prayer and will let you know when that is possible.
In this season the church building is set up as a safe space to come in and be still and pray. It will be open from 9:15am - to 4:30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can socially distance with some visual installations to help inspire us in our prayers.
We are in an exciting but challenging season of prayer. Pretty much every Christian meet would love to see their prayer life grow and develop.
This year we are trialling “Lent Streams”. These will replace weekly Life Groups for these weeks in March, and everyone is encouraged to opt into one of the groups on offer – whether or not they are regular members of a Life Group.
Our next Silent Prayer session will take place on Friday 31st January at 2pm in the Prayer Room here at St Swithin's. All are welcome.
