HOTS Bath is restarting, on Friday 29 April 2022, 11:30am to 1:30pm, in its usual spot in the Bath Abbey Square and will meet weekly on Fridays thereafter.
Each week, the team for the day will meet at St Mike’s at 11.00 for coffee (it will be Dorian’s treat!!!) and any nattering we want to do (so that there is not such a great need to natter to each other in the Abbey Churchyard).
At the moment, we’re not using the sign-up system so please get in touch with Dorian directly to register your interest in turning out on any date.
As a consequence of COVID-19, the passion play, One Good Friday, has been postponed until Good Friday, in 2021 (2nd April 2021).
In order to follow the government’s guidance with regard to ‘social distancing’, our weekly HOTS sessions are suspended until further notice.
We will be running some training in May this year. If you are interested in attending, please use our contact page to get in touch.
This event has been postponed until Good Friday in 2021.
On Good Friday (10th April, 2020) a passion play called One Good Friday will be performed in Parade Gardens (by the river, opposite the east end of the Abbey).
One Good Friday lasts 90 minutes and will be performed twice, starting at 12:00pm and 3:30pm. Admission is free.
A HOTS Bath team will be present.
HOTS Bath’s 12th season on the streets will begin on 10th March 2020. If our usual spot isn’t available (due to Abbey renovations) we will find somewhere nearby.
We will be out each week on a mix of Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 11:30am and 1:30pm, until we vacate the South Square in November in order to make way for Bath Christmas Market.
Details of the dates we are out on the square can be found on our Where/When page.
Our last session before Christmas will be on Thursday 14th November. After this have to make way for the Christmas market. We will resume again in spring 2020, probably mid-March. The dates for the 2020 ‘season’ will be announced on the Where/When page when known.
A HOTS Bath team will be present at the Bath Christian Festival on Saturday 27th July 2019 from 1.00pm until 5.00pm in Parade Gardens.
Some changes have taken place between HOTS Bath closing for the winter in November 2018 and reopening in the spring of 2019.
Firstly, Bronwyn & Steve Oborne have handed over the leadership of HOTS Bath to Dorian Baker. So, a big THANK YOU to Bronwyn & Steve for leading HOTS Bath for the last 3 years. And may God’s blessing be on Dorian as he takes HOTS Bath through its next season.
In conjunction with the above changes, on 1st March 2019 the registered charity Healing On The Streets Bath (Charity Registration Number 113098) has been closed and removed from the Charity Commission’s Central Register of Charities. HOTS Bath has joined the International HOTS network which operates under the auspices of HOTS Coleraine in Northern Ireland.
Despite these changes, this year’s HOTS Bath team will be made up of the same people who have served faithfully in the past. However, we do hope to add to our number as the year progresses.
