On 6 May, 1975, our church was Consecrated by Bishop Charles Henderson, then Auxiliary Bishop in the Archdiocese of Southwark. It was a major day in the life and history of St. Bartholomew’s.
This Anniversary is celebrated as a significant occasion in the parish liturgical year. A Catholic church is generally (though not always) consecrated when it is completely free of debt, and thus its future as a Catholic church is guaranteed.
The booklet that was printed for the occasion contained the complete words to the solemn Consecration and an outline of the Mass that followed. Two pictures and a potted history of the parish written by the parish priest Father James Carolin were included. These, as well as the cover are reproduced (click on them for larger images).

Accessibility - St. Bartholomew's does its utmost to accommodate those with additional needs. Whilst the main body of the church is wholly accessible to people with mobility disabilities, the choir gallery is both approached by stairs and the seating is then stepped by design. The church has a wheelchair-accessible toilet, and baby-changing facilities. There is a Loop System (AFIL) in place in the church.
