Sunday 27th June

09:30 Service on Zoom followed by Zoom coffee

11:00  Eucharist at Duns Tew (essential to book)   

Tuesdays  19:15 Bible Study on Zoom

Wednesdays  11:30 Prayer group with Celtic Morning Prayer on Zoom




We currently hold two services each Sunday, one on Zoom at 09:30 and one outside/inside one of the churches at 11:00.  The last regular 9.30 live zoom service is planned for Sunday 18th July, after which we hope a rota of services in church will resume. There may be occasional zoom services at other times after that.

       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.

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.

CHOIR!   We will be restarting church choir rehearsals

on Friday 23rd July (in preparation for the Bishop's visit on 25th July)


Rehearsals for the anthem choir will be at Manor Farm, Ardley

on Friday evenings at 7.30pm, probably once a fortnight 

A day and time for the children's & worship choir is not yet fixed but is likely to be just before each family service, starting in September.
