Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Barton Under Needwood

St. James Barton

After three months in hibernation Rev Andy Simpson can finally emerge into the light of outdoor meetings and services in church! How exciting is that? All three churches in the benefice will have services on Easter Sunday for the first time since last year. 

A service will be made available on Facebook and YouTube for those unable to come to church however, and it will be converted to DVD for the non internet using parishioners. Contact us if you know anyone who might like to be included in this service. Our Facebook page will have details of services. 

"The parish of Barton-under-Needwood is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO.

We found ourselves so upset by the closure of all churches that we were grateful when one of the retired priests who has been taking some of our services during the interregnum agreed to make a short videoed service to put on-line. We have continued to do this and have made it a weekly event. We have been delighted that Archdeacon Ven Matthew Parker has contributed to several services. Ven Matthew says he has enjoyed the freedom that a videoed service provides and the chance to experiment. Bishop Michael, Bishop of Lichfield contributed to our St James Day service and will contribute to the service on all Saints Day 1st November. In August, Bishop Alan Wilson, Bishop of Buckingham provided a sermon and blessing. Our founder Dr John Taylor, Master ofthe Rolls was also Archdeacon of Buckingham.

If you wish to join us for Zoom coffee after the service at 11.30 am, email the church warden for the link and password for the meeting.
