Welcome to St. Bartholomew’s, Ducklington

SBC welcomeSt Bartholomew’s is currently in an interregnum as Bob and Ruth Edy have left their posts, in May 2015,  for some well earned (semi) retirement.  The PCC is hopeful that a new Rector will be in post by early spring, 2016.  In the meantime, “we continue ……”

Let us tell you a little bit about our church.

St. Bartholomew’s is a beautiful medieval building set at the heart of the village. It has been very well cared for and provides us with a marvellous light area for worship which is cool in summer and very warm in winter. The acoustics are excellent.

On a typical Sunday morning about 130 people meet for worship – about half live in the village and the others come from outside. We are very much an all-age congregation with significant numbers from each decade of life up to and including nineties! We have a crèche and various children’s groups (up to teenage) so that the congregation reduces by 25% when the children leave the service for their own activities.

We have a number of special events through the year, with our unique Fritillary Sunday each April as the highlight.

We like to celebrate the seasons and often do so with food – pancakes, picnics and harvest suppers. We value our relationship with the local primary school and regularly host their events in the church.

The website will show you that we have a number of midweek activities – bell ringing, handbell ringing, housegroups, Lent discussion groups, Alpha courses, Julian meetings and more – but we do not have too many as we feel it is really important that church members do things other than church!

If you are looking for a church, we do invite you to come along and join us. We can assure you of a warm welcome and a style of worship which we feel is appropriate for an English village at the beginning of the 21st century.
