Christmas Eve 4-6pm Walkabout Nativity @St. Bartholomews
Instead of our crib service this year, we’re going to have an outdoor ‘Walkabout Nativity’ in the grounds of St. Bart’s. You’ll experience actors at different stations sharing the Christmas story as you collect clues to discover the identity of the promised child. The trail should take about 20 minutes.

Under 18s must be supervised as part of a family bubble and youll need to book a slot here:

Please walk, or park on the road, and arrive 5 minutes before your ticket time….and pray for good weather!!!

Your Next Vicar
For those who weren’t around for the announcement on Sunday…

After a formal application and interview process, it is with great joy that I (Chris) was offered and accepted the job of Vicar of the Benefice of the Redeemer (Church of the Saviour and St. Bartholomew’s). After Christmas I will take a period of study leave before returning in February as your new vicar. Both me and my family are very excited to be staying in the Benefice and look forward to serving Jesus among you!



Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not afraid to call them brothers and sisters.

Hebrews 2:11

Jesus is not ashamed of you. He’s not ashamed to be your brother. It’s as if he says to you today, ‘I know you feel a deep sense of shame, but I am not ashamed of you.’ He stands before the holy presence of his Father and says, ‘You see this wounded, broken, guilt-ridden sinner – they’re with me.’
