St Bartholomew's, Shapwick
People have been worshipping in this beautiful place for over a thousand years. The church dates back to the 13th-century. There is a real feeling of tranquility and spirituality here. In the beautiful village of Shapwick, with its thatched cottages and quiet lanes, and on the banks of the Stour, St Bartholomew's church is a gem. It is a great setting for weddings and concerts (best in the summer though!) Do visit and experience the peace and spiritual refreshment which St Bartholomew's church can bestow.
On the third Saturday morning of every month the local Russian community come here to worship.
