Welcome to St Thomas à Becket
All are welcome at our services. We accept that everybody encounters God in a unique and special way, and acknowledge that some people who come to our church have yet to encounter God, but are looking for spiritual nourishment. Warmth, kindness, informality and stability are important aspects of the church experience for our regular congregation. Many visitors have found comfort in this special place and from the fellowship they have encountered at times of personal need.
St Thomas à Becket offers something that is becoming increasingly rare within the City of Bath – one or two traditional services each Sunday. The 08.00am spoken service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays is quiet and reverential; the 10.30am service, with more conversation before and after, has an emphasis on traditional hymn singing, with organ accompaniment. Yet we are very much a single congregation, with some members alternating between the two. These traditional services are cherished by our members and integral to our identity as a church community.
