Church services

Normal services at St Bartholomew’s have been suspended due to the coronavirus epidemic.  The church is open for private prayer and prayer sheets are available inside.

It is proposed to arrange a rhythm of Zoom services going forward at least until we can meet face to face again. These will be alongside what is prepared for a Sunday.

The pattern proposed will be:

Wednesday, 5:30 pm: 
Book of Common Prayer (BCP) ~ Evening Prayer

Friday, 5:30 pm:       

Common Worship (CW) ~  Evening Prayer

Sunday, 5:30 pm:
Common Worship (CW) ~ Evening Prayer

These services will be led by the Worship Leaders Team with details of how to join these services sent out in the email on Saturdays.   If you would like to be included in this email list, please contact .
