Welcome to St Bartholomew's

Blog and Sermons - News sheet



It may be that you simply want to come and sit, to enjoy some time alone, to think about something that is on your mind, or to ask for God's help and protection. Our church is open each day between 10am and 4pm. 

You can simply sit and soak up the atmosphere in the silence of this holy place. If you would like us to pray for any specific person or reason, simply place a prayer request through the letterbox of the Vicarage. We will pray for you by name at our Sunday and Wednesday service.


Families, both young and old, are very welcome at church. Our worship style is engaging and welcoming with good enthusiastic singing- and prayer-centred worship. Children's Church takes place every Sunday during the 11am service (known as Little Shepherds), except for the first Sunday of the month which is an All-Age Mass suitable for the whole family.

When you come with young children, you will be warmly welcomed with an activity bag which will help entertain them. Try and resist the temptation to have a play with its contents yourselves...!

We try to be inclusive and accepting of all ages, and are thinking of new ways to improve our ability to offer fun and friendship to ALL in our community, however old or young. We see the friends we meet on a Sunday, and often during the week, as an extension to our own family: an extended family of trust and acceptance. Why not come along and see if St Bartholomew's/St Michael's is for you? 


Wednesdays at 10.30am: a fun group for mums and babies. If you enjoy craft, songs, play and refreshments, come along. All welcome.


Baptism is at the heart of our life as Christians. It is a starting point at which we begin to move towards God in faith, asking questions along the way, and enjoying the support of friends and family at church as we begin our journey. 

If you would like to know more about baptism, come along to main Sunday Service and speak to Fr Nathan after the service over a cup of tea or coffee. 

If you want to re-affirm your baptism vows at an important time in your life, this is also something we welcome and celebrate.


Weddings are a time of joy and celebration, and we are happy to be part of that. If you have been to our church before, you will know just how beautiful it is. You might want to have your big day with us. We can usually accommodate your needs and requirements, and look forward to speaking to you about your plans. Please come along on a Sunday, or contact the Vicar.
