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!

The next walk will be 11 miles on Friday, 5th September, meeting 10:00hrs at The Oliver Cromwell PH, St Ediths Marsh, SN15 2DF, (Grid Ref ST 977 645). This is near the village of Bromham, on the main A342 between Chippenham and Devizes. Permission kindly given for car parking, please car share if possible and contact Colin Craddock (01249 713371) if anyone needs transport. Please bring a picnic/lunch.
All welcome, not just those from St Bart’s.
The annual Ride and Stride event will be taking place on Saturday 13 Sep 2014 between 10am and 6pm.
This event involves visiting as many of Wiltshire’s churches as you can in the time window either by bicycle, on foot, on horse-back or jogging.
Half of the money collected through sponsorship comes back to your chosen parish and the other half goes to the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust, to enable it to make grants for the upkeep of churches and chapels in the county; St Bart’s has been a beneficiary of a grant in the past. Entry forms will be in our churches very shortly.
Although the event is not a competition there are a number of prizes available:
- The BROOKE CUP and £500 for the best all-round parish.
- The JUNIOR GROUP CUP, plus £100, to the parish with the most successful group of under 18′s
There are also other prizes for cyclists under 15, over 15 and over 65, for the most money raised, most churches visited and for the walker raising the most money.
