One of the most memorable days during my England tour was the Sunday morning I spent worshipping with those who attend The Abbey Church of St. Peter and St. Paul at Bath.
I'd been looking forward to this since I first found out we had free time on the first Sunday morning of our tour---there was just no way that I wasn't going to take time to thank God for allowing me to have this awesome England experience.
What an amazing experience to fellowship with other Christians on a site that has been devoted to Christian worship since 757 AD!
What was really neat is the fact that this site at Bath was originally part of a complex dedicated to pagan gods as early as 600 BC.
I love this timeline that explains the history of the site. What a great way to remind us how God took something bad and turned it around for good. While some would say the pagan past should be forgotten, the Christians visiting the site would not be able to make that connection without a reminder of the history of the place.
Another amazing part of the service was the sweet boys choir. It was so awesome to see them in their green and white robes, making their way up the aisle, singing all the way.
"For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread." ~1 Corinthians 10:17
I am so thrilled to have been given the chance to worship and receive communion with the other believers at Bath Abbey. God is alive and doing good things in England!
