Life Church Bath (Bath Christian Trust)

When a young couple gathered a handful of students to pray together in a flat near the Royal Crescent in Bath in the late 1960's, they never envisaged becoming a church. The group became known as Bath Christian Fellowship and grew, building around a sense of family and community in daily life, meeting throughout the week in homes and meeting halls.
Bath Christian Fellowship bought its first building in Bath in 1978 and then, some 10 years later, after a remarkable story of unique opportunities and financial provision, the church purchased the former city centre cinema, The Forum, with its large auditorium and listed art deco features.
Now known as Life Church Bath, we are an increasingly diverse and more dispersed congregation in the city and beyond of some 550 adults, youth and children.
Our heart as a church community is that we want to remain focused on being radical and relevant to all generations in a fast changing world.
