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,

Please find attached to this email our monthly magazine Bathwick News for February 2023 . Many thanks to all contributors and to Kerry Hughes for collating the issue. Please take a note of all the events and activities taking place over the next few weeks.

Attached to this email is the service sheet for the service at St John’s at 9.00am and St Mary’s at 10.30am tomorrow morning which will be live-streamed on the Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page for those unable to attend in person as well as the noticesheet for this coming week.
