St Bartholomew’s is a Church of England church in the village of Ripponden, West Yorkshire, on the edge of the Pennines, and boasts both beautiful scenery and a vibrant community.
The church’s worship is traditional, middle of the road Anglican, with regular services on Sundays and Wednesdays, using both Common Worship for the main Sunday morning service and the midweek said Communion. The Book of Common Prayer is used for Holy Communion two Sundays a month plus Evensong on the first Sunday of the month.
