We currently hold two services each Sunday, one on Zoom at 09:30 and one outside/inside one of the churches at 11:00, and will keep to this pattern for at least the month of August.  To enable us to maintain covid-safe distancing, please book a place for any service at a church by emailing services@bartonbenefice.org.uk at least 24 hours in advance. 

The 11 o'clock services are as follows:

  • Sunday 1 August:  SSM Eucharist

  • Sunday 8 August:  OW Eucharist

  • Sunday 15 August:  SB Pet Service

  • Sunday 22 August:  WB Eucharist

  • Sunday 29 August:  DT Eucharist with Baptism

If you, or anyone you know, need help – spiritual or practical (or with zoom!) – please get in touch with one of the Ministry Team or your churchwarden.  Contact details are on the Who's Who page.  It is still so important for us all to stay connected, so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you feel in need of extra support.
