Welcome to St Bartholomew’s church at the heart of the lovely village of Chipping. 

Here you will find a place where you can be in God’s presence, whether it is with others at Sunday worship or alone in the peace and stillness. Here we enjoy each other’s company, welcome visitors and have fun. 

The building is kept open from 10 – 4 each day so do step inside, explore an ancient church which has stood here for over 500 years, and take a moment to meet with God yourself. 

Please don’t be discouraged by the impressive steps at the front of the church! There is level access through the gate at the side.  


We are delighted that Sunday worship has resumed. 

There will be a morning service at 10.45 every Sunday in July.  From 1 August there will be services at 10.45 and 6.30 every Sunday. 

St Bartholomew’s church is open for private prayer 10am – 4pm every day.

As a church family it’s very important to us that children and vulnerable adults are treated with dignity and respect. We have adopted the House of Bishops ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance. We have appointed and trained Parish Safeguarding Officers  and all those working with children and adults at risk have undergone safer recruitment, received safeguarding training and support.

Our lead Parish Safeguarding Officer is Dr Pam Tomlin 07802 429101
