Welcome to St Michaels, a special place nurturing hope for nine hundred years.
First and foremost St Michael's is a church made up of ordinary people trying their best to follow Jesus. We aspire to be a serving, loving, engaging, inspiring, hospitable
honest, praying and worshipping group of people. We don't agree about everything, and we don't always get it right, but we still seek to encourage each other to follow the Jesus who unites us and who is transforming our lives.
We are committed to supporting our neighbours in the centre of Bath. Sometimes this is through offering hospitality; sometimes this is through a commitment to shopping locally; sometimes this is through prayer. We are constantly learning more about God's presence in the world.
We also try to do things slowly. There is an African saying that we need time to allow our souls to catch up with our bodies. So we try and avoid the rush which undermines friendship.
Prayer is important to us in this respect.
We work with a wide variety of partners in and around the city. We run our parents and toddlers group on Friday mornings in the crypt, lunches for the Genesis Trust on Mondays and Wednesdays and our Friday Fellowship lunches and talks on alternate Fridays. There are often literary or arts events and concerts in the Church and for more information please see our weekly programme details.
The St. Michael's Cafe
We recently rebuilt the church interior. The St. Michael's Cafe is now run by the church with the twin aims of providing hospitality and generating income to give away to those in need. We currently support ASHA in New Delhi (click on the link on this page). We are also delighted to see so many people to coming into our city centre church to find some peace and stillnes and to pray. We do need such spaces in our busy world.
So, come and join us for a cup of coffee, a piece of cake or a light lunch in our beautiful building. We are open from 10.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Saturday.
We have lift access up to the cafe, and are particularly pleased to see children.
