At Home with St John’s – our digital activities programme

Due to Activities resuming, At Home with St John’s – our varied weekly timetable of live video classes that have been thoroughly enjoyed throughout lockdown, will unfortunately discontinue.

However, we are delighted that Liz Lee’s Gentle Exercise will continue to take place via zoom:


Wednesday, 10am – 11am


Wednesday, 11.30am – 12.30pm


Please note, if you attempt to book on to a class and are directed to a page that says ‘Registration Closed’, this means the class is fully booked. Please email community.outreach@stjohnsbath.org.uk to join the waiting list.

Booking online and using Zoom

We are working closely with local organisation, Connecting Generations to offer you all the support you need to access our virtual activity programme. Contact us on community.outreach@stjohnsbath.org.uk to let us know what support you need. Someone will then be in contact to get you ready for going live.

We look forward to seeing you!
