Are you from overseas, visiting, working or studying in Bath?
We would love to welcome you and invite you to join in all the activities we have planned! These include English Lessons, Multicultural Alpha, International discipleship groups and a number of other special events throughout the year.
We are open to all nationalities and faiths, so do get in touch with us if you would like to know more or want to be involved with All Nations.
“Traditionally Bath has been a predominately white middle class sort of town, but God put in my heart a burden for the nations. He made it clear to me through Isaiah 60 that the nations would come” says Jeanne Wood leader of the All Nations Team. “We now have English classes for internationals coming to Bath, with trained TEFL teachers who give of their time freely. The last course had 150 people registered from many different nations. We have a growing community of internationals who love to meet together for their discipleship group and for community times, which include lunches. There really is a buzz of people from all over the world here in Bath. We also a multi-cultural Alpha course which provides an opportunity for learners of English to explore questions of life and faith.”

One of the many Community Groups within BCC is the Internationals’, a group specifically for those from overseas, and for whom Bath is perhaps just a temporary home. It might be just some months, or it could be years, but if your heart lies overseas then the International Community is a good place to belong, especially as food is usually involved!
As Hilary Law says. “You only feel that you belong when you know that you’re accepted for who you are – that’s primarily what being in a community is all about”.
The International Discipleship Group will be starting again on Thursday 6 June.
All Nations Events
Would you like to practice your English while learning more about the Christian life? Multicultural Alpha is a course providing an opportunity for learners of English to explore questions of life and faith. All around the world, in more than 140 countries, the Alpha Course has been popular, and it has now been especially adapted for people learning English at an intermediate or advanced level.
Each sessions involves a meal, short talks, activities and discussions. There are opportunities to learn new vocabulary and the pace of the sessions can be varied to make sure that everyone can understand. There will be plenty of opportunity to express your opinions and to ask questions!
The course will be a great chance to make friends over food and a chat. There is no charge, though there will be an opportunity to contribute towards the cost of food, or to actually contribute food itself – our meals usually have a multicultural flavour!
The topics covered include:
‘Is there more to life than this?’
‘Who is Jesus?’
‘Why did Jesus have to die?’
‘How can we have faith?’
‘Who is the Holy Spirit?’
‘How can I make the most from the rest of my life?’
The next Multicultural Alpha course begins on Thursday 10 October 2013.

We are aware that many of you return to your countries and cannot always find a group of like-minded people to meet with that will help you grow in your faith in the Lord.
We have come across a discipleship course which we believe you would find very beneficial. It is made up of 55 different sessions and you can go at your own pace, doing as little or as much as you desire. We are recommending it to you on the basis that it will be an ongoing encouragement and help to you in your growth and maturity in the Lord.
