ST BARTHOLOMEW’S CHURCH: The next service on Sunday 3rd February will be a CANDLEMAS celebration and the same warm welcome awaits!
The service starts at the normal time of 9:15am, and everyone is welcome.
AT YOUR CONVENIENCE: The Parochial Church Council under the leadership of Reverend Cora Yarrien have decided to embark on a church building project to install a toilet and kitchen at St Bartholomew’s church. The toilet and kitchen are essential facilities for any public and community building. The church needs to raise approximately £50,000 to see the project become a reality. The church is looking for support, whether it be financial, fundraising or project support to help reach the total and achieve the installation. It is hoped that in the future the church will be able to compliment further the already great community assets in the Parish namely the Village Halls and the pubs.
As a Grade 1 listed building we want to ensure that the church remains open and is here for years to come to help support the community needs of all those that live in Sutton cum Lound, Lound and Barnby Moor as well as visitors to the area. We are keen to hear from anyone who thinks they may be able to help in some way.
To help, please contact the PCC Secretary Mrs Janet Webb, telephone (01777) 818 682, or the Reverend Cora Yarrien on (01777) 838 776, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

CHURCH SERVICE: Sorry if you missed it; last Sunday’s service at the local church was at the later time of 4:00pm and was widely publicised! This event, the 4th Sunday in Epiphany, was scheduled at the later time to allow some worshippers the opportunity to attend, who may not have managed to make the regular time of 9:15am on Sunday mornings.
A reasonable turnout considering the time change and peoples habits, after-all, we are all creatures of habit. The service was conducted by local vicar, Reverend Cora Yarrien, ably assisted by worship leader Janet Webb. PCC members were also available to help as and when required. Two outstanding features in this service was the attendance of members of the local school choir (accompanied by organist Mr. Geof Webb), who gave an excellent performance on the day, and were warmly applauded by those present. A big thank you to them and accompanying parents – well done all.
After the appropriate prayers and the singing of hymns the incumbent, the Rev. Cora introduced various prayer corners in the church, these included a world map with an invitation to the congregation to pin or highlight a country or area in urgent need of help and prayer. A Prayer wall was also available for the gathering to express their thoughts and prayers in writing for all to see! A new idea? Quite possibly, but very effective, and certainly brought people together. On completion of the prayer corners, the vicar led prayers for the world in general accompanied in parts by the congregation. This was listed as a Family Service and families were there and were pleased to be so.
At the conclusion of the event, the gathering were invited to remain for refreshments which this week consisted of soup / sandwiches and bread rolls, served by the vicars own fair hands, assisted by volunteers.
