Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Barholme with Stowe

About Us

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact and movement, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.

Please, if you need help at all or are feeling anxious please call or text Fr Aran Tel. 07590 055905.

We will endeavour to update this notice as the situation develops,

St Martin’s, Barholm is a medieval church, exhibiting Saxon origins and beautiful Norman arches and arcading, as well as evidence of the Tractarian values espoused by the parish in the 19th century.

The church serves the small parish of Barholm-with-Stowe – around 40 houses, a thriving public house & a well-respected private nursery school set in a conservation area.

Visitors often comment on the special atmosphere of peace and tranquillity within the church – which is also enjoyed by worshipers (from inside and outside the parish) at our service of traditional Evening Prayer on the first Sunday of the month at 6pm and Holy Communion (Common Worship Order One traditional language) every third Sunday at 9am under normal circumstances.

We welcome those who wish to have a guided tour in large or small groups and why not combine this with a cup of tea and cake.

We have made improvements to the church to ensure that your visit will be as safe and comfortable as possible.

Many too enjoy the quiet, calm and reflective atmosphere that St Martin’s provides. It has a distinctive traditional feel and asks to be visited along with others in the group.

St Martin's is one of the seven churches of the Uffington Group of Churches (which covers the seven parishes in the triangle between Stamford, Market Deeping and Bourne, in the South West corner of Lincolnshire).  The other parishes are St Margaret, Braceborough; St Thomas of Canterbury, Greatford; St Lawrence, Tallington; St Michael and All Angels, Uffington; St Andrew, West Deeping; St Faith, Wilsthorpe.

The Rector of the Uffington Group, Fr Aran Beesley may be contacted on 07590 055905 or email: [email protected]  especially for Baptism enquiries and visiting those who are ill.
