Welcome to the church of St Peter in the village of Barton, Cambridgeshire. This was a flourishing village even in Saxon times, for it is mentioned three times in the Domesday Book. In modern times, the village is part of the Lordsbridge Team Ministry in the Bourn Deanery of the Diocese of Ely, with Team Vicar Rev. Rebecca Gilbert taking special responsibility for Barton and the neighbouring villages of Coton, Haslingfield and Harlton.
Our Parish Church is open for private and public prayer, for worship, or just to visit, during daylight hours each and every day.
The Oasis holiday break for Seniors is again being organised by our group of churches. Oasis provides three mornings of interesting activities and enjoyable company followed by a lunch. This will be held in Haslingfield and this year’s dates are from 28th – 30th July. If you, or someone you know, would like to go, please give them the details. Booking is essential. Helpers are also needed each day and if you volunteer you do not need to commit to every day. Help is needed with setting up rooms, laying tables, preparing salads and/or desserts, washing and clearing up as well as chatting to the holidaymakers! Further details from Anne Coulson.
Sunday 5th July at 9.30am sees Corin Redsell’s final service at Barton as a Curate in the Lordsbridge Team, although we will hopefully still be seeing him and Nicky in the future. There is also a celebration service in Coton at 5.00pm, followed by a party on the green opposite the Parish Room. Everyone is welcome.
