What’s already happening at St. Bartholomew's church?

Worshipping in a modern, attractive building, all age groups are well represented in our congregation.   A Sunday school meets at the same time  as our 11am Sunday service and the church extends a warm welcome to everyone.

The parish church  occupies a prominent and attractive location in the town and is popular for baptisms and weddings.  We also conduct many funerals at St Bartholomew's as well as being a venue for civic  and community services such as the annual Pretoria Pit Memorial Service, the  Town Remembrance Sunday Service  and the Civic Service.
