The Parochial Church Council under the leadership of Rev’d Cora Yarrien have decided to embark on a church building project to install a toilet and kitchen at St Bartholomew’s Church.

The toilet and kitchen are essential facilities for any public and community building. The church needs to raise approximately £50,000 to see the project become a reality. The church is looking for support whether it be financial, fundraising or project support to help reach the total and achieve the installation.

It is hoped that in future the church will be able to compliment further the already  great community assets in the parish namely the village halls and the pubs.

As a grade 1 listed building we want to ensure that the church remains open and is here for many years to come to help support the community needs of al those that live in Sutton cum Lound, Lound and Barnby Moor as well as visitors to the area.

We are keen to hear from anyone who thinks they may be able to help in some way. To help please contact the PCC secretary Mrs Janet Webb Tel 01777 818682 or the Rev’d Cora Yarrien 01777 838776 or email
