Welcome To

St Bartholomew's


I am so delighted you have found your way here! There has been a church here for a thousand years or more and while the town has changed with the passing centuries the message of God’s love in Jesus Christ remains as real and relevant as ever. All around us there is so much anxiety and uncertainty, not only stemming from the pandemic but also from economic pressures, loneliness and  isolation.

Jesus told his first disciples in John’s Gospel “Peace, I leave with you, my peace I give you.” It is the unchanging peace of God in a fast and ever-changing world for which St Bartholomew’s stands. The building itself reminds us that God is bigger than the things that are bigger than us!


We would love to see you on Sundays, we meet at 10 am and there is always a warm welcome, even if it is through our masks!


The clergy are available if we can be of help. Enjoy the website and I hope to see you soon. God bless you with his peace,




The Very Revd Robert Key


Bob is Anglican Communion Lead for Thy Kingdom Come and a member of the clergy team.

Family Praying

A prayer for all those

affected by coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from

your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
