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 50 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 tranquility 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) held on the fifth Sunday in the month at 9am
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.
