St Bartholomew’s Church

Welcome to St. Bartholomew’s Church. This lovely church is a place of worship that welcomes all, whatever their experience of the Christian Faith. St. Bart’s is a medieval church rather like a small cathedral. Many details of its unique features can be found in the folders on the history table including a detailed survey and history of the wall paintings.

Sunday services are normally held twice a month with a weekday service once a month: the schedule of dates is to be found in the porch.

We are constantly fundraising to keep the church in good repair by holding concerts and social events throughout the year. These are also advertised in the parish magazine. Have a look at our WW1display and family history table. We have a table with a collection of second-hand books and films; if you would like any we ask you for a donation if you feel so inclined. Please put your money in the wall safe by the main door. Have a look in the crypt – its unusual history can also be found in a folder on the history table. There is a quiet corner at the east end of the north aisle and a bench in the churchyard for quiet reflection – sometimes you may be joined by local chickens and sheep!

The village school uses the church regularly for assemblies and concerts. Children from this village join those from local villages Whissonsett and Horningtoft once a term for Messy Church which is held at Whissonsett Village Hall.

Coffee mornings run by Brisley Social take place monthly at the village hall; dates of these are advertised in the parish magazine.

Enjoy your visit and let us know what you think about the church by writing in the visitors’ book – or perhaps leave us a picture, drawing or poem in one of the books on the reading table.
