The Church of All Saints stands on one of the oldest continuous sites of Christian worship in England and is the spiritual hub of the thriving village community.
There has been a church here for more than 1,000 years, making it one of the oldest sites of continuous Christian worship in England, but it’s no museum. The church is a welcoming community, with lots going on for people of all ages.
Whether or not you consider yourself to be a churchgoer, the church is there for all, either for the weekly services on a Sunday, for the Little Fishes Sunday School, or as a space for prayer and peace and quiet throughout the week – a key is always available in the shop; just ask.
Services are held weekly at 11am, including very popular family services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. You are very welcome to attend.
Little Fish (our Sunday School) takes place the third Sunday of the month, during the Family Communion Service. Run by parents, anyone is welcome to join us in better understanding the Bible from a child’s perspective.
The church also has a vibrant link with Barton Stacey Church of England School, contributing to collective worship, and adding to the richness of pupils’ experience throughout the school.
Craft and Praise takes place every couple of months in the church. It is run by the vicar and anyone is welcome to come and take part. It usually involves singing, craft and prayers, with some drinks and biscuits thrown in.
A major event in the village social calendar, the Church Fete usually takes place in early July, and shouldn’t be missed. Look out for our other community events throughout the year, such as the mystery evening quiz and harvest supper.
And if you’re feeling green fingered, why not pitch in with one of our twice-yearly churchyard working parties? Many hands make light work for a couple of hours on a Saturday morning to keep our beautiful grounds looking pristine.
We welcome visitors and the key is readily available at the shop across the road. Services are held weekly at 11am, including a short Family Service on the 1st Sunday of the month.
The parish of Barton Stacey & Bullington (including the hamlets of Tidbury, Norton, Newton Stacey and Bransbury) is part of Brightwaters Benefice.
