St Bertoline’s –Why we’re here.

That the community we serve may know that St Bertoline’s is here to profess the faith, to celebrate it in worship and prayer, and to share it in fellowship, so that we may say, “We would see Jesus”.

The Old Rectory, Barthomley.

Hello Everyone,

Now well into autumn, nearly all is safely gathered in, the days are getting shorter and the nights are drawing in, glorious sunsets and the harvest moon to marvel at. There seems to have been a great deal of activity in our parish and so much to give thanks for.

To bring you up to date with the situation at church; applications for the vacancy will close soon (or be readvertised if necessary). The inspection of the Rectory has taken place and the Diocese will decide what improvements to carry out while the house is empty. We the PCC are responsible for the maintenance of the garden and here I must say a massive thank you to Brian and Tristan Whittaker for reducing a lleylandi hedge and cutting the very overgrown boundary hedge. The Diocese say use professionals- we have our very own on the doorstep and are most grateful for their assistance. Other people have continued to maintain the churchyard and repair the water butt.

It is not too late to book your tickets for the HARVEST SUPPER on Saturday 5th October, phone Janet Peacock 07778428796 Margaret Lawson 01270 876447 Chris Bailey 01270 873253
