We are very pleased to be able to tell you that a new rector has been appointed to the benefice. Revd Jane Wright will be moving into the Westcote Barton rectory sometime in the late summer or early autumn. Jane is currently working in a rural benefice in Suffolk, so is used to country life. She and her husband Alan, a retired Methodist minister, are very much looking forward to meeting everyone and working with us.

The PCC would like to thank you all very much for your patience, prayers and support during the vacancy. Do remember that even now services and activities are carrying on as normal. And although people come and go, and we go through good times and bad: God remains the same. He is always with us, loving each one of us every minute of the day.

If you need to contact someone about church related or spiritual matters, the phone number is the same: 01869 340510, or send an e-mail to: enquiries.bartonbenefice@outlook.com (for weddings, baptisms and so on) or clergy.bartonbenefice@outlook.com for anything else.
