St Bart’s It’s September, so it’s nearly Christmas.  Last year at Barts we had a ‘from all of us to all of us’ Christmas card wall rather than sending lots of cards, and everyone who used it gave a donation to charity.  Last year we ‘twinned our toilets’ - if you would like to suggest a charity to support this year, please contact the parish office.
