St Bartholomew's, Grimley

In the heart of Grimley village, and right opposite the school, St Bartholomew’s Grimley is a beautiful and well-loved place of worship. We normally hold two services a month, one of which is heralded by our wonderful bellringers. Please check the Worship page for details of upcoming services.


We welcome the whole school into church to worship every week, and we have an active band of volunteers who keep the churchyard looking beautiful and the church building clean.


We love a good Christmas Fayre, and our “Hymns and Pimms” services are growing in popularity too.


We are surrounded by spectacular wildlife - a particularly good “patch” for birdwatching, and we have the delightful Monkwood Nature reserve in our parish too (as well as some excellent pubs)!


We would love to welcome you and get to know you!
