St. Bartholomew’s, Yealmpton

August 30, 2013

A very Victorian church on the side of a steep hill. It is well worth visiting. The sign boards are very good and make it clear that St. Bartholomew’s is open to all. There is a church guide but this had sold out on my visit. There is a nicely set out children’s area here and 7 people had entered their names in the visitors book over the last 22 days.

One nice idea here is a diary for ‘Significant Anniversaries’ . People enter dates in of marriages, deaths etc and then the parish can prayer for them on the right day. Another idea well worth copying as I have not seen this anywhere else. A votive stand and prayer board are available as well.

Another nice idea was that bread and wine were left on the altar to remind all visitors of what goes on here.

As I was getting ready to leave a man came in to practice the bag pipes! He did ask if I wanted peace and quiet. It certainly filled St. Bartholomew’s with sound.

I rate this church as very good.
