Christmas Events

Christmas Present Appeal

When many are enjoying celebrations with friends and family, others are struggling to make ends meet.

The Christmas Story inspires us as a church to reach out to those in need, just like the innkeeper welcomed Mary and Joseph into his stable.

Bath Citadel Salvation Army wants to make sure that no child in BANES goes without a gift this Christmas.

Can you help us by donating a present to a family in need?

New, unwrapped, toys can be dropped off at Sally Ann’s Café, The Salvation Army, Green Park Road, Bath, BA1 1XE from now until Friday 6th December.

A team of volunteers will then sort the gifts, which will be distributed to children and families in the area through The Salvation Army’s own networks, local agencies and social services.

For more information about our appeal, contact:

Major Amanda Lee (01225 400051) or Community Manager Allison Whittaker (01225 400082)

or email

Toy and Food Parcel packing will take place on 9th, 10th and11th Dec.

Cafe Xtra @ Sally Ann's

The Dept of Works and Pensions [from the One Stop Shop in Bath] in partnership with local agencies are using Sally Ann's Café on the second Wednesday of every month, 2.30pm - 4.30pm, as a venue for advice, chat and other services...or for people simply to go in, have a sit down and a rest.

Other agencies involved are Clean Slate, Bath Mind and enactus Bath (from Bath Spa Uni).

There's live music from a guest musician each month.

Bath Mind offer a 1-2-1 chat about any matters relating to mental health, and there's an off-shoot of the Friends in Need group.

Three B's: Check your benefit entitlement with Clean Slate, see how you can 'future-proof' your finances, and discover other ways in which they can help you.

Clean Slate also have advisers on hand to chat with those thinking of returning to work, and as partners with Reach Housing Advice they can arrange for any  support you need with housing issues.

Disability Employment Advisers will be able to answer questions relating to existing and new benefit claims, Universal Credit procedures and anything that might help you improve your quality of life.

And having a chat with Uni Students might help those with a yearning to try some art work...or for other skills they could  share with you.

So there's much on well as having a sit down, perhaps getting some tea or coffee - and watching the world go by!
