New Service Pattern at St. Bartholomew’s

Revised Service Pattern for Tosside Parish

The present pattern of a service every Sunday at Tosside church is proving unsustainable for the members of the congregation.

The PCC has agreed to reduce the number of services at St Bartholomew’s Tosside to one a month on the third Sunday of the month from 1st July 2017.

The monthly Evening Prayer at St James’ Dalehead will continue on the first Sunday of the month.








Festivals and other celebration services will continue as usual . Keep an eye on the website for special services. Harvest is next on the list.

Should there be a demand for services more often, then this will be looked on favourably by the PCC
