Each student will be provided with generic feedback and a personality scorecard.

Free English Lessons
7:30pm - 9pm

OTGE FREE ENGLISH COURSE with qualified English teachers to help you
This is a chance for people from countries (not the UK) to meet with others in the same position as them, to learn more English: improving pronunciation, gaining confidence speaking, learning new grammar and vocabulary. It is a relaxed, informal classroom setting with qualified teachers. This friendly group enables people to connect with others, find friends and have fun while getting better at English.
It is called Open to God English (OTGE) because it is run by people from St Saviour's Church and we use stories from the Bible as part of the lesson. We also have a theme, worksheets, games, and learn pronunciation through the Colour Vowel Chart. Individual help is given to students who need it during the lesson and we encourage people to ask questions. 
If you are interested in joining the class,  just come along on the night and try it for yourself. Each lesson you will learn new things. There is a break for a hot drink and cake/biscuits for 15 minutes in the middle, so you can get to know the other students. 
Once a term we have a social - eating a meal together or visiting somewhere interesting in Bath.
“I would like to thank you for your wonderful English lessons, your hard work, support and friendship” Ania
“It is a wonderful opportunity to learn about religious texts, correct pronunciation, for learning of language games, different topics.” Raia
 “This course has helped me improve my pronunciation and also given me the opportunity to meet people from different countries” Claire
“Very helpful! A good way of learning English in a relaxed atmosphere. Bravo to the teachers who are volunteers, they do a really good job! They pay attention to every student. The thing I most like is the friendly atmosphere within the group and the tea break!”   Najeeb
Whatever your level - beginner or advanced, you are welcome to come along and start at any point in the course. We have a different theme each week - in the coming weeks we are doing: Friends and Family, Gardens and Plants, Emergencies, Animals and Birds.

The lessons are held in the upstairs classroom on the first floor at St Saviour's Church (in the door and up the stairs to the left) There is a lift for disabled access. 
 If you can't come every week - that's OK - come when you can. These lessons have helped many students become more fluent and confident in English and we can help you too. 
Everyone is welcome: whatever faith you have or if you have no faith. There is an extra half hour from 9.00 to 9.30 (Open to God Extra) where we talk together about the Bible passage and discuss spirituality and different religions. This is optional, so students do not need to stay for this if they do not want to.

Free Meditation & Yoga – just show up–we start on Wednesday in Bath 7.30pm
Free Meditation & Yoga Bath
7:30pm - 9pm


Hello there! - We'd like to welcome you to Free weekly meetings hosted by Michael, Bernard which take place at the:

John Williams Room (2nd Floor), United Reformed Church Halls, Grove St, Bath, BA2 6PJ,

on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm

With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we normally sit on chairs to achieve yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. No Mats or special clothing required.

All across the globe, many are seeking new sources of energy. Meanwhile, the most transformative energy of all is hiding in plain sight, within us. It's natural, sustainable, and infinitely renewable. It's called inner kundalini energy. And everyone already has it — everyone!. It is often likened to an inner feminine or motherly energy which automatically knows about us and what is needed to help us restore balance and harmony within our subtle being. It works spontaneously, effortlessly, organically and cannot be paid for.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple time-honoured technique that lets you tap into that energy and harness its power to become better balanced and better connected to yourself — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

If you're having trouble juggling the challenges in your life, Sahaja Yoga Meditation might well help you manage stress, master your emotions and find solutions to your problems. You may enjoy better health, better focus, and a deeper understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation is not just for mystics and monks. Sahaja Yoga meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it. It's that easy. But with the Sahaja Yoga experience, you'll quickly realise, it isn't your typical Meditations 'R Us type class. It's much more than just feeling peaceful and relaxed. Sahaja Yoga Meditation has many layers, varied and deep. Explore at your own pace, in your own way. Our volunteer experts are always available to help.

Ready to plug into your inner energy? A Sahaja Yoga Meditation class is a great way to start. A few minutes of your life may be all it takes to connect to your inner energy and light the path to lifelong transformation. Sahaja Yoga is more than a temporary solution or quick relief — it is a journey, rather than a destination. It's all about energy — guaranteed pure and carbon neutral. You can never have too much of it.

The best part? All classes are free. No strings, no catch.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend, bring your self — all are welcome.

We have a web site here in London too which you can visit for more info about weekly meetings: www.sahajayogalondon.co.uk
