Service details

There are usually six services across Sundays at Bath Abbey. "By the Way" — the 6.30 pm informal service — is the most popular with students. This is a simple, easy-going service with reflective worship and thoughtful, applied teaching. A student group meets after the service over pizza or at the pub.

Look out also for all night events. These offer a chance to spend the night in the Abbey, praying, playing, being creative, sleeping, climbing the tower and eating. More info available via the facebook group "Before the Week Bath Abbey".
