Our staff team are all working from home and fully contactable (you can pick up our emails in the 'Staff Team' area of this website). If you want to speak with someone then ring the church office number Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 12 noon or 1.00pm to 3.00pm.

St Bart's is seeking to offer volunteer assistance, food and medical supplies to the most vulnerable in our communities so email or phone the church office, if you or someone you know, needs urgent help.

'Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.' Philippians 4 v 4-7

11.15 Congregation

The 11.15am is more the ‘11.00 for 11.15’ as we begin with coffee and croissants together as part of our gathering, which includes a service that lasts for an hour or an hour and a quarter. That service is a mixture of the formal and the informal, with both contemporary songs and more traditional hymns, and has biblical preaching and prayer at its heart. Our children and youth go to their own groups after about 15 minutes of the service.  An increasingly mixed core of people from in and around Bath support a strong ministry to both UK and international students, which gives the congregation a diverse feel.

Our current focus is on creating a culture that enables St Barts’ vision of growing the church in different dimensions. The culture we are fostering is summed up in our slogan, “A community to belong to rather than just a service to attend.” We are currently concentrating on four aspects of that, to create a culture: where everyone is welcome and belongs; of prayer for one another; of mutual care and support; that is outward focussed.

Two individuals co-lead the 11.15 (Charlie Ward and Jem Hovil), as part of a wider team who cover various aspects of congregation life.
