We are at the end of Twerton High Street just past the glorious Full Moon Pub. Can’t miss the building really… The number 5 Bus stops just on the corner. As has been said repeatedly before, the church is not the building but the people – so in actual fact you can ‘find us’ all over the place in Twerton


We believe God wants church to operate as family and he invites His family on His mission to share the news with everyone in Twerton that Jesus changes lives. We encourage everyone to join a smaller ‘family on mission’ that we call missional communities. These communities each have a different focus to reach a specific pocket of people.


We currently have the following Missional Communities:

  • Roots (exploring the roots of Christianity)

  • Twerton Central (loving local Twerton residents)

  • Families (modelling kingdom family across the generations)

Missional Communities meet on 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month at various times & locations. Contact us if you’d like to join a community.


In addition to our services and other community activities, we run two major programmes in Twerton to assist the needy in the area: The Rose Cottage Community Hub and the Lighthouse Project. 

Rose Cottage Hub

Situated on the High Street, right in the heart of Twerton, Bath, Rose Cottage Community Hub was built in the 1830s as a gift to St Michael’s Church.


Since then it has served as a residence for churchwardens, parish officers and curates.  In the 1990s, the ground floor of Rose Cottage was converted into a Community Centre and the Centre dramatically expanded its work in the community.

Today, Rose Cottage Community Hub is an organisation which intentionally seeks to be an agent of change and facilitator of community cohesion. Rose Cottage Community Hub offers services and opportunities which support the development and quality of life of people living in Twerton and surrounding areas.


We do this by operating a community cafe and garden; running family-specific events to encourage healthy family life; making rooms available for hire; acting as a signpost to other service providers; providing opportunities for people to volunteer and by operating a Foodbank distribution centre.

Lighthouse
