Anglo-Catholic Churches in Bath

Leaving the centre of Georgian Bath and crossing the river Avon by the world famous Pulteney Bridge, you are already in the Parish of St. Mary the Virgin, shortly to be joined on your left side by the Parish of St. John the Baptist. Together these form the United Benefice of Bathwick.

Dear brothers and sisters,

Attached to this email is the service sheet for the service at St John’s at 9am and St Mary’s church (10.30am) tomorrow morning (this service will be live-streamed on the Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page) and the noticesheet for this coming week. We welcome Fr Chris Kinch as our officiant and preacher at the service tomorrow morning.

Other services tomorrow and next week in the benefice are expected to be offered as follows:

  • Sunday 27 November: Advent Carol Service at St John’s at 6pm – a wonderful way to start the great season of preparation for the celebration of the coming of the Lord! Come and enjoy many of the favourite Advent hymns – to include Come, thou Redeemer of the earthLo, he comes with clouds descendingO come, O come, Emmanuel – and listen to scriptures and seasonal music, and enjoy fellowship afterwards 
    (service also to be live-streamed on Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page)
  • Tuesday: Mass at 9.30am at St John’s (also to be live-streamed on Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page)
  • Wednesday: Mass at 10.30am at St Mary’s
  • Thursday: Mass at 10.30am at St John’s
  • Friday: Mass at 9.30am at St Mary’s (also to be live-streamed on Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page)

  • next Sunday 4 December (Advent 2): Mass at 9am at St John’s and 10.30am at St Mary’s

This is also the last reminder that those individuals whose names have been listed on the intercession list of the sick contained in the weekly noticesheet for more than 3 months will be removed at the end of November unless a request is made for them to be retained on the intercession list – please reply to this email or speak to me in church between now and the end of the month. Thank you.

Also attached is the monthly Bathwick News for December and January. Many thanks as ever to Kerry Hughes, our Parish Administrator, for collating this, and to all contributors. The magazine contains details of the principal Christmas services – please make a note of these and make every effort to attend when possible – and invite others to come with you!

With my continued prayers and best wishes for you all
