About us

Over a decade ago a group of friends began gathering together in homes, longing to know more about the nature of God and His presence. In January 2005, Father's House was established as a church family, open to all who would like to find their identities as true sons and daughters of the Father. We have long-standing links and friendships across the city of Bath and beyond, and love being a part of the wider family of God.

Mark and Melanie Brooks

Mark & Melanie Brooks currently lead the Father's House team. They have been involved in business & church ministry for over 30 years and enjoy working with a broader leadership team including young adults to lead the family. They also help lead the House of Prayer, Bath with a long-standing desire to establish 24/7 worship & prayer for the city & nations. They met in Bath back in 1985 and have 3 grown up children who are based in Bath, Yeovil and Kansas City, USA.

Paul and Sue Wakely


Paul & Sue Wakely founded Father's House, Bath more than a decade ago. They have been involved in the church in Bath for over 40 years. Their passion is to see God's fathering revealed, His love poured out and true oneness recovered amongst his people in the city & that the world may know! Paul & Sue now give most of their time to building a growing friendship between leaders in the city & being a blessing amongst God’s people wherever they are invited, both in the city and beyond. They remain convinced that there is only one church in the city, but with many expressions of that one church!
