We are here to serve the combined Anglican churches and the wider communities of Corsham, Lacock, Bowden Hill, Neston and Gastard, where our main aim is to grow followers of Jesus Christ.
You can keep up-to-date with what’s happening in our monthly and weekly Newsletters, the Rector’s News, and joining in with our activities; we also offer a wide variety of services for all ages. We look forward to meeting you in person!
Priest in Charge (Team Rector)
Following a lengthy trial period beginning in July and a chaotic September and October where the Rector’s day off seemed to change every week for various reasons, from Monday 3 November onwards the Rector’s day off will be changing to Monday from Friday. The only exception between now and Christmas will be the week beginning Monday 10 November, when it will be Tuesday to enable attendance at a Corsham PCC meeting previously scheduled for that Monday. His telephone message and email signature will be updated to reflect this change, but inevitably some publications and websites may lag behind, so if you are aware of places where the details have not been changed, please let him know, or inform the relevant person yourself. This change will result in increased availability towards the end of the week nearer Sunday, and reflects the fact that funerals and wedding rehearsals often need to take place on Fridays.’
St Bart’s will again have an Advent Tree of Remembrance. It will be lit for the first time on Sunday 30 November at 6.00pm. The tree will then be lit at every service until after Christmas. An invitation to sponsor a light is extended to all those who have lost a loved one. This is particularly relevant this year, with 2014 being the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I. So that members of the congregation can have the opportunity to share in this remembrance, forms will be available by the church door until the closing date of Sunday 23 November.
