ST BARTHOLOMEW'S CHURCH
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.
