We aim to be contemporary in style, with a format which is relaxed enough for us to go with the flow of the Spirit. We place an emphasis on dynamic, vibrant, band led praise and worship, relevant bible-based preaching, and response through the application of prayer ministry.

We start our Sunday meetings at 5pm with coffee, tea and toast, then we begin our services at 5.30pm with a short welcome from the meeting leader, followed by around 30 minutes of sung worship, which is led by a band. From here a passage will be read from the bible and the preacher will deliver a short talk (usually 30 mins). We move into a further time of sung worship and offer an opportunity for anyone who wants to receive prayer ministry, either in response to the talk, or for anything else.

Our usual pattern is to share Holy Communion together once a month.


Our parish of Widcombe, Bath is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Bath & Wells’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO (see or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (see .

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
