As a church we are eager to offer support and practical help to any in our community who may need it.
- Food shopping
- Picking up medicines
- Checking in by phone
- Help getting online
We also want to work with others looking to serve in these and other ways.

Though we are unable to gather as a Church community at the moment, we have started live-streaming a service of Morning Prayer each Sunday on our YouTube channel. We go live every Sunday at 10:20am; the service itself starts at 10:30 and lasts 40-50 minutes.
We have also been trialling ways of gathering online via video chat, to socialise, pray together and support one another even though we can't meet. We are using the "Zoom" app for this purpose, and invite the whole Church community to join together before and after Morning Prayer each week. Details of our Sunday Zoom gatherings are available on each service's live-stream page. For help getting onto Zoom, please click here.
There has never been a better time to explore the begin questions of life and faith, and though we can't gather physically to do so, we would love to invite you to an online enquirers' group running over Zoom. If you are interested in spending some time thinking about the Christian faith and its relevance to life today, particularly in the midst of COVID-19, then please fill in this short form to let us know what may be of interest to you.
We have set up various email lists to help us stay in touch with one another, support the most vulnerable amongst us, and work towards a wider support effort in our community. If you would like to join any of these lists, please fill in this form. Anyone can opt in and out of receiving any of these emails at any time.
Our regular home groups are continuing to meet via Zoom, studying the book of Romans together on Tuesday or Thursday nights.
The St Bart's Quiz Night happens every fortnight via Zoom, and we are also launching the St Bart's Book Club, reading and discussing CS Lewis's Out of the Silent Planet together. Sign up for the weekly email to find out more about both of these.
By far our most important response as a Church family is to pray to our sovereign, good and powerful Father in Heaven.
If you are worried about coronavirus and would like someone to pray with you, please email email@example.com.
We continue to urge our church family to pray every day at 12:30; see our daily email (available through the contact form) for details of our online gathering for this purpose.
Here is a prayer you might want to use yourself:
Lord Jesus, when you walked on earth
you healed the sick and stilled the storm;
We look upon our world and see its frailty and weakness.
We ask that you would look kindly on us,
Please help all who are sick and all who are confined
Please help all medical teams and care workers,
Please comfort the afraid, and those worried for their loved ones
Give us all faith above fear.
As we weep at sickness on earth,
May it remind us we are made for a new creation with you.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns, or if you need any help or assistance.
