Additional Information for appointed Preachers and worship leaders
who lead worship at Weston Methdodist Church, Bath
WMC is situated on Newbridge Hill; on a corner facing a roundabout (one road leads to the RUH, Bath). Parking can be difficult but on-street parking is easier on Sundays and we suggest you park along Newbridge Hill near the church. You should enter the Church from Newbridge Hill (we have glass doors) where the Duty Steward will greet you.
The church is a light, airy and bright space with chairs in the main sanctuary that can be arranged to suit your needs. They are usually arranged in 'theatre style.' At the front of the church, a raised area runs across the whole width of the building. The organ positioned at stage right. There is a Communion Table (usually centre) and a two lecterns - either side of the Table.
Occasionally we have one or two much younger children in attendance for the service. If so, we offer a crèche facility.

On the morning
When you arrive and after introductions, you may wish to finalise any preparations you have for the service with the sound/visual technician or organist. At about 10.25 a.m. the Duty Steward will say a prayer with you.
Start of the Service
The Christ Candle is lit 10-15 minutes before the service starts. A Steward will commence with the welcome and give any Notices (we have “IAN” - Information and News - which is given to all worshippers). Then it is over to you!
