Sadly, due to London moving into 'Tier Two' restrictions, we are having to cancel Cafe Church for the time being. It will remain cancelled as long as the Tier Two restrictions remain in place.

1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month.
Coffee, cake and Jesus?!
An informal service, sat around coffee tables with drinks and home-made cakes (appropriately socially distanced and with table service in keeping with Covid-19 guidelines). Though relaxed and informal, the service includes (interactive) prayer, praise plus conversation and discussion of the Bible reading for the weekend.
Not sure about church, but would like to discuss faith rather than hear someone preach? Maybe this is for you.
(While all are welcome, the format of this service means it is best suited to those over 16 years.)

The heart of our life and worship. We meet with Jesus through the Scriptures, through our fellowship and as the Lord comes to meet us in the bread and wine of Holy Communion.
We share our concerns with God in prayer, we listen for God's voice in the readings from the bible and a sermon and we gather as the people of God around the altar.
While singing is currently not possible, music is still a part of our worship from our fine organ, piano and sometimes soloists.
The form of service (the 'liturgy') follows contemporary Church of England patterns.

All ages are warmly welcome at St Bartholomew's. Our regular Sunday children's groups, which meet for part of the service most weeks, are currently not able to meet. However children are always welcome in the service; there are some simple activities available for younger children for use while sitting with their families, and on the fourth Sunday of each month the prayers, sermon and other parts of the service are especially chosen with all ages in mind.

All are welcome!
