The Benefice of Yarnton with Begbroke and Shipton-on-Cherwell


Welcome to St Bartholomew’s website. Here you can find when we have services and who to contact if you have a question about our church community. The church is open every day and we welcome you to come and use it as a place to be quiet and reflect or pray.

We also warmly welcome you to join us on Wednesday and Sunday mornings, when we give thanks to God and pray for his help in living our lives.



The building of St Michael's church is a small, peaceful and spiritual space that exists for all those of all genders, race and beliefs who are seeking peace and reflection through the week as well as offering joy and celebration on Sundays.

The congregation of St Michael's are also small, but they work to bring God's kingdom closer in our parish.



Spring means new life for us and more boats on the canal. We welcome everyone into our church and our community, regardless of whether you are a regular worshipper, or a local, or are just passing by.

Those of you who live in Shipton, Thrupp or somewhere in-between hopefully are aware of the “Friends of Holy Cross”. You can find out more elsewhere on this website.
