Coronavirus Updates

Last updated 26th June 2020

Here you will find all the most up to date information about how Barton Church is responding to the Coronavirus pandemic. Keep checking in with this page for updates and changes.

In line with Government guidance, we have postponed all Sunday and mid-week gatherings, groups and events until further notice.
We are now meeting online for our Sunday gatherings as well as for Life Groups, youth groups and prayer groups.

As lockdown eases and we begin returning to a ‘new-normal’ we will be continuing all our online provisions and services.  We will take steps towards in-person gatherings on Sundays when we feel it is safe and sensible to do so. This is most likely to be through prioritising our smaller gatherings such as Life groups in line with government advice. Please do contact us if you are not in a group yet as we would love you to be a part of one so that you can grow in faith with others in community.

Barton Church Live
You can find us every Sunday at 9:30am on our YouTube Live channel by clicking here. We are starting a new series in the book of Isaiah called ‘Faith in God’s Promised King’. We would love to have you join us.

Caring for our congregations and community
At this difficult time we are working to support those in our congregations in Canterbury and Faversham as well as the wider community. If you are in need of any help, please do let us know by emailing

Christianity Explored
We are excited to be running this course again in the coming weeks and are encouraging everyone to consider who they could invite to this opportunity to find out more about Jesus. If you have big questions on life or faith, please get in touch with us and see if this course is appropriate for you.
