Hay Hill Baptist Church is a vibrant church in the centre of Bath, with an age range of newborn to ninety. Hay Hill is a welcoming community with people of all stages of life, including a lot of families.

We meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30, with children and young people having a programme of activities that run in parallel. The style is friendly and family-oriented. We worship and reflect together, and in all that we do look to spur each other on to follow Jesus. This means getting to know God as our father, and living the kind of life Jesus lived and taught. You are welcome to join us, whatever your life situation and beliefs.

We run and contribute to a wide variety of activities:

Under 18s

We run a vibrant programme for children and young people from birth to year 10 on a Sunday morning during the service.

Little Me is an exciting group for under fives and their carers that meets on Monday mornings in term time from 10-11:30. It is a lot of fun with plenty of space for play, creative craft and action packed singing. If you are interested in attending or would like to know more please email Little Me.

Church activities

The church has a number of small groups that meet in people’s houses around the city. Our home groups offer the chance for us to share our lives, support each other and spur one another on in living for Christ. 

We run weekly five-a-side football, and we have a great cricket team too. All of these sports activities are for anyone who wants to have a go. There are also regular mens's breakfasts and social events for the men of the church.

Out in the community

We support Genesis in their work for the homeless population of Bath, and provide one of the teams who serve lunch for the Sunday centre.

The church building is used every day by a variety of community groups during the week. We want to share what we have with others, in order to bring hope and to encourage good things in our city.

Leadership and vision

Hay Hill is lead by a leadership team including our Minister Dave Magill. The leadership team works alongside the church membership to seek the way forward for our church community. 

We believe that we are blessed for the purpose of blessing the city of Bath and seek ways to do that. We feel called to live as people who are bringing life to those who we share our lives with.
