The Hospital Church of St Bartholomew the Less

The Priory Church of Saint Bartholomew the Great is London's oldest surviving church. Founded in 1123 as an Augustinian Priory, it has been in continuous use since 1143. It is an active Anglican/Episcopal Church located in the part of London known as The City.

Originally known as the Chapel of the Holy Cross, and founded nearby in 1123, the Hospital Church of St Bartholomew the Less, just inside the hospital gates, moved to its present site in 1184. It was called the Less just to distinguish it from its larger neighbour.

On 1st June 2015, the two parishes formed the new united benefice of Great St Bartholomew, which now contains both churches. The Parish Church is St Bartholomew the Great, while St Bartholomew the Less is what is known as a Chapel of Ease – this means it is a church provided primarily for the convenience of those close to it, in this case especially those working or present as patients in the hospital.

The Smithfield area, which includes St Bartholomew's Hospital and Smithfield Market, has a large number of restaurants, bars and pubs both north and south of the Market. At the heart of it all is the Priory Church (that is, the Great), which was built when Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, was King of England. It survived the Great Fire of 1666, and the bombs dropped in Zeppelin raids in World War I and during the Blitz in World War II. In the late 19th century, it was renovated and restored to its medieval plan as far as possible by Sir Aston Webb, his first major restoration project. Drawing on their nearly 900-year history, our Churches today are noted today for their remarkable architecture, traditional formal worship, marvellous music and intelligent preaching.

The area around the churches is now in the process of changing significantly, and this expected to make the area even more active than it has been until now. To the north of the church, the new Crossrail Farringdon Station is being built. Crossrail expects that 140 trains per hour will travel through the new interchange, which will link Thameslink, Crossrail and the Underground networks. It will also be possible to reach three of London's airports from there. Farringdon will be one of London's busiest stations, and is likely to increase visitors to the area very considerably. To the south of the church, Helical Bar and The Baupost Group of Boston will be re-developing former hospital buildings on Bartholomew Close and Little Britain. When finished, these are expected to comprise 236 new apartments, 21,400m2 of office space, and 2,200m2 of retail space.

The church has appeared in many films, including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love, Amazing Grace, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Other Boleyn Girl, Muppets: Most Wanted, Snow White and the Huntsman, Sherlock Holmes, Jude, The End of the Affair, and Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, many TV shows, including Richard II from the BBC's The Hollow Crown, the BBC's Edwin Drood, and the T-Mobile Royal Wedding Advertisement, with more shows and films now in post-production.

The Revd Martin Dudley BD MSc MTh PhD DArts FSA FRHistS AKC was the 25th Rector of St Bartholomew the Great since the Reformation
and is the 1st Rector of Great St Bartholomew

Adult Confirmation at the Priory Church

The Bishop of Fulham will be coming to the Priory Church on Sunday, 24th April 2016, to confirm adult candidates who have been previously baptised and to receive into the Church of England those who join us from another part of the Christian Church. Adults needing to be baptised will receive that sacrament from the Rector on one of the Sundays before the confirmation. Confirmation, the second part of the rite of initiation, makes it possible to receive Holy Communion. If you are interested in adult baptism and/or confirmation or in being received, please contact the Rector on 020 7600 0440, or by emailing him on rector@greatstbarts.com. The remaining preparatory sessions exploring the Christian Faith will take place in the Cloister on Saturdays, 10:30 to 12:30, 27th February, 19th March and 9th April 2016. On 21st April at 19:00, there will be an early evening rehearsal for the service, which all candidates must attend.

Deemed a 'major young artist with the potential to make an international impact,' Clare Presland was the 2014 Royal Philharmonic Society Susan Chilcott Award winner. Already a regular soloist at the Royal Opera House and English National Opera, Clare has appeared recently in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and The Force of Destiny at ENO. Alongside this busy operatic career, Clare enjoys many engagements as a soloist and is a particularly gifted singer of English song such as the examples heard today. Simon Lepper is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished piano accompanists working in the UK today. His long list of collaborators includes Mark Padmore, Angelika Kirchschlager, Christopher Maltman and Elizabeth Watts.
