Reopening in September 2020

St Bart’s has been temporarily closed so that it can be reordered. Reopening in September 2020

The removal of the organ has allowed the rose window to be visible for the first time in 150 yrs.

The organ was removed by an organ builder and taken to be installed in a chapel in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Thanks to Lottery Funding, a series of grants and some fantastic support from friends and volunteers, the re-ordering work can begin. Under-floor heating, fitted kitchen and toilets are going to be installed in St Bart’s.

We would like to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has helped and supported the Events and Activities at St Bart’s. It is thanks to you that the church will now be fully accessible to all
