Welcome to St. Bartholomew's Church
4 Westwood Hill, Sydenham, SE26 6QR

Welcome to the new website for St. Bartholomew's. Here you will find information about our worship and our activities, as well as our place within the wider community.

St. Bartholomew's is a Grade 2* listed parish church in the Church of England, based in Sydenham, London. There are about 200 people in the congregation, from diverse backgrounds, and our worship combines all the main traditions of the Anglican Church.

We welcome all Christians and those enquiring into Christianity, and communicant members of other churches are invited to take Communion with us.

We have services every day (except Mondays) and two Eucharists on Sunday at 8am and 10am.

We seek to:

  • be an inclusive, family-friendly place for the community
  • be somewhere people can be in touch with the spiritual
  • offer worship to God
  • find new purpose in life

We offer:

  • a place of prayer where all can feel at home
  • a place of shelter where the lost can know themselves found
  • a place of pilgrimage where we learn and grow on our journey together
  • a place of support for and challenge to the community

St. Bartholomew's has also established itself over the years as a formidable music venue and this is something we wish to expand upon in the future and as part of our major restoration plans.
