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.




All at the Bathwick parishes express their condolences on the death of 
HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Personal tributes can be made online at

Special prayers will be offered in both St Mary’s and St John’s churches in the days to come – further details to follow

Dear brothers and sisters

This morning’s service from St Mary’s church, on the 2nd Sunday of Easter, has now been uploaded to the Bathwick benefice YouTube channel and can be found by clicking on this hyperlink: Many thanks to Fr Chris Kinch (at St Mary’s) and Fr Robert Webb (at St John’s) for presiding at our churches this morning.

This evening’s service of Evensong & Benediction will be live-streamed on the Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page at 6pm.

As previously indicated, the services on Wednesday and Thursday mornings (both at 10.30am; at St Mary’s and St John’s respectively) will both be requiem masses for the soul of the late HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Both of these services are open to the public to attend, subject to the usual Covid restrictions.

The services on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings (all at 9.30am) will be streamed on the Bathwick Benefice News Facebook page.

Do contact me or one of the Churchwardens or Assistant Clergy or another member of the church leadership team if you’re feeling lonely or anxious or in need of support.

With continued prayers for you all this Eastertide
