Welcome to St Bartholomew, the parish church for Cresswell, Elllington and Lynemouth.

We are a friendly community worshipping in a beautiful church which was built in 1836 by the Baker-Cresswell family. 

We hope you will find what you need here, if you have any questions please contact us by phone or email or find us on facebook for information on our latest news and events. We also have a website:

Come and experience yourself what it feels like to pray, sing and share in a space that has many stories to tell.
