A liberal & inclusive church, seeking God through beauty in our worship, honesty in our faith & doubt, & service in our community

 

We are currently in a period of vacancy after the retirement of our Priest in Charge. During this time our services are being led by Kara, our curate, and retired priests from our congregation, with contrbutions and support from Mark, our Lay Reader and Jane, our Ordinand.

 

 

Kara Maylor joined Christ Church as curate in July 2021 and was priested in Bath Abbey in June 2022. With her twin enthusiasms for God and physical exercise, Kara runs an after-school netball club in St Andrew’s School and also visits regularly to run school assemblies. Often accompanied by Barney, the ministry dog, she is a friendly, colourful ambassador for the Church on Julian Road and in the surrounding area. She has encouraged the Cedar Tree Café community to carry on talking and walking after the café closes, heading out into local parks as well as organising trips a little further afield.

Simon Tatton-Brown worked as a probation officer in Manchester before training for ordination at the College of the Resurrection (Mirfield). For six years he was Chaplain to the Bishop of Manchester, and he’s been a parish priest in Prestwich (north Manchester), Westhoughton (near Bolton) and Chippenham. When he retired in January 2014 he joined us at Christ Church and sings in the choir, as well as preaching and presiding on a regular basis.    Simon Tatton-Brown

 

 

 

Beryl and Peter Bowes recently moved to Bath and now have the Bishop’s permission to officiate.

Beryl qualified as a general and children’s nurse after training at Great Ormond Street hospital in London. Peter trained as a solicitor. Beryl was ordained deacon in 1991 and in 1994 became one of the first women to be ordained priest. She worked for a number of years as a hospital chaplain in Hull before moving into parish ministry Peter became a Reader in the Church of England in 1971 and continued in that role until ordained in 2003.

Prior to retirement seven years ago, Beryl’s and Peter’s final posts were as Incumbents of two adjacent benefices in North Yorkshire, Beryl’s a seven church rural group and Peter’s a small market town.
