A MESSAGE FROM OUR RECTOR

Welcome to our latest Footprint news, hot off the press from Bath Abbey – indeed
getting hotter by the day!

Not only is the floor of our beautiful building now gloriously heated throughout, we are getting closer and closer to the exciting “Big Reveal” … After so much of the Project being hidden behind the scenes, more and more is now coming to completion.

We are beginning to see the fruit of all the amazing vision, prayer, planning, generosity and skilled hard work poured into resourcing the future of the Abbey and its ministry.

For someone like myself, who has never before seen the Abbey building without hoardings in place, inside as well as out, the beauty of our renewed worship space is simply overwhelming.

The new Song School, meeting rooms, office space and interpretation programme will transform what we are able to offer not just to our own Abbey congregation, but to the city we serve and its visitors.

Please watch out for a programme of Footprint opening and celebration events, due to take place in the Summer and Autumn as Covid-19 restrictions allow, and as each new part of the building work is complete.

And then … let’s look forward with even greater anticipation, as we discover where God’s footprints are leading us out in mission and service!

Rector of Bath Abbey
