Welcome to the church of St Peter in the village of Barton, a parish within the Lordsbridge Team Ministry in the Bourn Deanery of the Diocese of Ely. Our Parish Church is open for private and public prayer, for worship, or just to visit, during daylight hours each and every day.
Once again we shall be carrying the cross around four of our closest churches within the Lordsbridge Team on Good Friday, 3rd April. This year we will be starting in Barton at St Peter's Church at 1pm and will stop briefly at All saints, Haslingfield at 2pm, at Harlton Church at 2.45pm, and we then carry the cross on to St Helen's, Little Eversden, for a short devotional service between 3.30 and 4pm. Do come along and join us anywhere along the route to walk with us, or to help carry the cross, or you might like to meet us at one of the churches for a brief time of reflection and prayer.
This year's first Open Gardens in the village will be on Sunday April 12th. We will once again be serving teas in the Village Hall for church funds. Homemade cakes and help would be much appreciated; please see Anne Coulson. From last December new food allergy legislation came into force so we do need to be able to tell those buying cakes what they contain, especially gluten, nuts, eggs and milk.
We will be cleaning up the churchyard for the summer season on Saturday April 4th, from 9.30am to about midday. Please come along with a few garden tools to help us tidy up the churchyard after the winter. Coffee and biscuits mid-morning!
We will be decorating the church with flowers for Easter on the same day and if you would like to help with this, please contact Janet Ireland.
