This is a quieter, reflective evening service of praise and prayer which follows a liturgy and with a short talk. It's a lovely way to end a Sunday. From the 14th March we will be back in Emmanuel Church building and will be following current government safety guidelines during these Coronavirus times. We look forward to welcoming you.
We hold an evening service of Holy Communion on the fourth Sunday. We are back in Emmanuel church building from the 14th March 2021 and will follow current government safety guidelines during these Coronavirus times. We look forward to welcoming you.
Our Fellowship group meets on a Wednesday evening. We start with a cuppa and a prayer. We look at a piece of scripture and try to discern what God is saying to us, putting into the context of the Bible as a whole and also into the context of our own lives. It is a time when we can share together God's word and encourage one another in our faith. We meet at Emmanuel, so plenty of space if you would like to come along and try us out. You would be very welcome. Contact Michael or Susannah if you would like to join the group. On the third Wednesday of each month we take a break from our study to pray for the world, the city, our church and each other.
Craft and Chat - temporarily not meeting due to Covid-19
The Craft and Chat group meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month. We create something together, or you can bring along your own craft and just chat - or even do no craft at all and just enjoy the chat! We enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. We are a friendly group and always ready to welcome new members.
Parent and Toddler Group - currently not meeting due to COVID but hopefully soon!
The Parent and Toddler (and grandparents and Carers!) group meets on a Tuesday afternoon during term time. A time to chat with friends, and make new ones, whilst the youngsters play - we have a musical interlude with guitar and nursery rhymes, a cuppa for the adults and a drink and biscuit for the young ones.

Grace Church new family worship on a Sunday afternoon -
We are the youngest Church family in the Bath Deanery with a service on a Sunday afternoon, enabling those who find Sunday mornings a barrier due to sport, shift work etc, to join in fellowship and hear the good news of Jesus! We are made up of people of all ages seeking to live in God’s world in God’s way. St John’s Lower Weston has kindly given Grace church a home and we normally meet at 3.30pm for tea and coffee with our service taking place at 4.00pm until 5.15pm. Children’s tea and more refreshments take place after our time together to spend time in fellowship with one another. However, in these Covid times we are not having the time of fellowship and refreshment before and after the service and the service kicks off at 4pm.
Weather permitting, we plan to hold a ‘bring your own’ Messy Church picnic in the gardens of Emmanuel on Monday 7th June from 3.30 - 5.30pm. This will be our first meeting together since March 2020 and we can’t wait! We can provide tea/coffee and squash. Just bring something to eat and a rug. If it’s raining, we’ll reschedule to the following Monday, 14th. Ring me, Jane, on 07443937749 if you’re not sure if it’s happening or not.
We plan to have one Messy Church session in the building on Monday 5th July before the summer holidays.
Messy Church normally takes place on the first Monday of each month, except when the Monday is a Bank Holiday, in which case we hold it the following Monday. We start with a bible story, a prayer and a song and then 'get creative' with glue, paint, colouring and cooking around the theme of the bible story. We finish with a meal together. It is lots of fun and families, teenagers, older folk . . . all are welcome to come and join in the creativity! We don't run Messy Church in August. We hope to see you there!
