During the time that our church has been closed, we have seen a dramatic drop in our income. Whilst some of our expenses have also dropped, we do have some regular bills that need to be paid.

 

If you would like to support out work in the parish, a donation can be made by clicking the 'button' above.

 

All donations to St Bartholomew's Church are gratefully received.  

Until May 2020 Stoke Rivers was an independant parish of about 140 inhabitants with a small hamlet at its centre with just over 30 dwellings. Parish reorganisation saw the ecclesiastical parishs of Stoke Rivers and Bratton Fleming join together, to become the parish of Bratton Fleming with Stoke Rivers.


St Bartholomew's continues to serve the people of Stoke Rivers. Although there are no regular services a, we welcome you into the church to pray, to sit quietly in reflection, or to look around this lovely old building.


St Bartholomew's is a very simple and beautiful Grade 1 listed building, hardly changed since its foundation. it was built in the fifteenth centure in the perpendicular style. the upper section of the tower was added later. the north wall and tower still have the original 15 century windows.
