Map   Unless otherwise stated, all meetings are at Manvers Street Baptist Church Hall and start at 2:30 p.m. The Church Halls are next door to the Bath Police Headquarters and only a few minutes' walk from the Railway and Bus Stations.

Visitors are welcome to attend meetings; fee 3.
Afternoon tea is served following meetings and a charge of 1.50 is made for this.

         
        PARKING in central Bath can be difficult - and expensive. The nearest long-term parking is in the Underground Car park under the Southgate Shopping Centre, but visitors to Bath, coming by car, are strongly recommended to use one of the four park-and-ride bus services - which all stop near the Bus Station, a few minutes walk from our meeting place.
