Barlow is a friendly church with a warm welcome for all, young and old alike. The Grade 2 listed church is in a large churchyard, open for burials, with rhododendrons and scattered trees. It is a delightful setting for weddings (see church website for more information). There is a fine set of vestments of Roman and Gothic design, with a beautiful purple cope, much used for funerals. The highlight of the year from the village point of view is the service of Blessing of the Wells, held at 6 pm on the Wednesday after St Lawrence's day.
