COVID Precautions.

Given the currently rising infections rates and concerns over new COVID variants, we encourage everyone attending church services to wear a face covering and to observe the social distancing guidelines. Please look after one another so that we can help to minimise the risk of a new wave of widespread infections. Thank you.

Advent Resources

We are providing a short series of video reflections on YouTube during Advent, to supplement our church services (not instead of them). These will be available later each Sunday morning, after the church services, on the “A Church Near You” page for each of our parishes.

There are further Advent worship and prayer resources on the <st1:personname w:st="on">Diocese of Norwich</st1:personname> website, ( including this year’s Advent Calendar, a series of daily reflections from around the diocese.

Barton Turf Christmas Charity Collection

This year, as we are not collecting clothes, we have decided to collect for the Foodbank. The collection will be between 4th and 12th December so there is time to deliver parcels to families before Christmas. Please put your offerings in bags or boxes and they can be left in the porch or inside the church. They particularly want tinned fruit, long life fruit juice and long life sponge puddings. They have plenty of baked beans, cereal and pasta. Perhaps a child's treat?

Christmas Cards - Barton Church

This year's Christmas Cards are available in the church. They will also be on sale at the Farmer's Market on December 11th. Price £5.00 a pack.
