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 left open during daylight hours so that you can step inside, explore an ancient church which has stood here for over 500 years, and take a moment to meet with God yourself.

St Bartholomew's is a wonderful setting for your church wedding. The ancient church is beautiful, and the village of Chipping is only a few minutes drive away from some of the most sought after reception venues in the Ribble Valley and Forest of Bowland. Explore our Wedding pages to find out more.

The Silver Service - First Tuesday of Each Month

The Silver Service is for anyone who enjoys traditional church but struggles to get to a Sunday service. The service takes place at 2:00pm in Chipping Village Hall on the first Tuesday of each month.  There will be Holy Communion followed by refreshments and time to chat.

Please let your friends and neighbours know about this initiative. Please also let Fiona know about people who might like to come but would need some help to get to the Village Hall.  On the subject of help, please let Fiona know if you are able to help with refreshments or transport for those wanting to come.

Our Mission Charities

Following a review of our giving, we have now decided to focus on three charities for 2017.

2.4 billion people don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. That’s more than a third of the people on the planet. By donating £60 to twin your toilet, you help those in desperate poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy. Your smallest room becomes the proud owner of a certificate, complete with a colour photo of its twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin on Google Maps.
