St Bartholomew's

Welcome to St Bartholomew's, Sydenham.

We are a friendly and diverse church where all people, of all ages, are welcome.

This site has details of our regular services and other activities, contact details and some information about the church and it's life.  There are also links to our website which has more in-depth information on the history of St Bartholomew's and to our Facebook page and YouTube channel where regular information and recorded or live-streamed services can be found.

COVID 19   we are very pleased to once again be meeting in person for worship.  There continue to be measures in place to keep us all safe - social distancing, face coverings etc., but it is good to gather together for prayer and worship.

Do join us in person or on-line.  All are welcome!
