About Us

Stoke Rivers is a widely scattered parish of about 140 inhabitants with a small hamlet at its centre with just over 30 dwellings.

We don't hold regular Sunday services here at the church - but celebrate the festivals with one off services - and we are open for weddings, funerals and baptisms. Please get in touch for details.

The church is open every day to visit during daylight hours, it's a beautiful reflective space kept clean and beautiful by the community which values it. We have an active Friends Group, if you would like to find out more or join, please contact us.

St Bartholomew's is a very simple and beautiful grade 1 listed building, hardly changed since its foundation. it was built in the fifteenth century in the perpendicular style. the upper section of the tower was added later. the north wall and tower still have the original 15 century windows.
