St Bartholomew’s Church has been serving the people of Pendle for almost 900 years and continues to play a valuable role in the community of Colne and Villages. An Anglican Church, we share a united benefice with Holy Trinity Church, Colne.
We have a friendly, inclusive, all-age congregation, seeking to worship and to serve God, through his Son Jesus Christ, in the power of his Holy Spirit.
The church is open every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am until 12 Noon, when visitors can experience the quiet of the ancient church, with its interesting history and architecture, or spend time relaxing with a coffee and talking with other visitors and church members.
We hope that you will find a warm and hospitable welcome when you visit St Bartholomew’s!
