Begin The Week

We all lead busy lives. The aim of 'Begin The Week' is to do just that, in the beautiful quiet space of the Abbey.  In an hour together we create a time and space to review the past week, to reflect on some aspect of Christian teaching and be renewed by the Spirit of God for what lies ahead in the coming week. 

The congregation includes members of the Abbey community, visitors from other churches in Bath and international visitors. 

Occasionally we retire to a local pub after the service to enjoy one another's company and to reflect on our time together.
