Priest in Charge: The Revd Gareth Randall

Patrolnal Festival

By tradition, the Saturday nearest to August 24 (the feast day of St. Bartholomew) an ecumenical service is held. Local clergy of all denominations are invited to take active part and members of their churches also join the congregation. The service is bilingual alternate hymns and alternate readings in the alternate languages, with a short sermon delivered in each of the languages. Afterwards, everyone is invited to join in a 'verre d'amitié' and refreshments. Weather permitting, this part of the celebration takes place in the church garden.
