About St Bartholomew

What we are

We're Anglicans in the Church of England, in the liberal and reformed anglo-catholic tradition. What does that mean? Well, put as simply as possible (which isn't easy) we're here to serve our whole community and all people, of all faiths and none - this is sometimes called the Social Gospel. You can read our Parish Mission here. What we are is what we believe - that we represent, along with all other churches, the living body of Christ in the world today and that, at our best, we can be healing and transformative of our world. Big claims, but that's the Christian story!

What we try to do

We try to live by actions, not just words. We try to follow the example of Jesus, who shows us in his life a God who accepts everyone who comes to him. So everyone is welcome, just as they are - we're not a club for good or holy people, but for everyone, whether you have faith or you don't, whether you have friends and family or you don't, whether you're happy or sad, whether you love or hate yourself.
The Christian story tells us that we're loved more than we can possibly know, just as we are.

We come together for services of worship every Sunday, alternating between our two churches in the parish. We will always try to celebrate Holy Communion - founded by Jesus' Last Supper with his friends - but we also make room for Matins, Evensong and other services, events and prayer groups during the week.

What we ask of you

Nothing. Just that you come in your hopes and your fears, your joys and your sorrows, to meet an extraordinary God among ordinary people.
If you want to get more involved in our ministries that's entirely up to you - it may be God calling! He'll do the heavy lifting, if we just let him.

All our services of worship at both our churches are listed below - or just click on Diary to check what's happening!

2 Timothy 2:19

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
