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.
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.
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.
