St Bartholomew's, Ubley

The Street, Ubley. BS40 6PJ 

Ubley can best be described as a small rural village with a big heart. Situated off the main A368 road, it is both chocolate - box perfect to look at, but also has a vibrant and changing population.  

People in Ubley are hugely community minded; be it through their support and involvement in the church, the school or the village hall, (or all three!).  In more recent years there has been a very welcome influx of younger families with children and consequently  the school is thriving resulting in the building of two additional classrooms. There is a happy dynamic between our younger and older community members, who work together to ensure that Ubley is a safe, happy and enjoyable place to live. 

Ubley has the largest village hall with the consequence that there are many community events which utilise that facility ranging from Ubley Publey once a month to safari suppers to school PE and other sports. In addition, it is used across the wider community of Chew Valley by a number of organisations such as U3A.  

St Bartholomew's provides a range of services; Taize, Family All Age services, meditative prayer, café church and communion reflecting the mix of people of all types and ages who use the church.  

Ubley Church Facilities Project (UCFP) is well underway, the fund raising for which is nearing completion and involves adding a kitchen and toilet facilities to our church in order to extend our outreach opportunities. We have a vision of the church as a HUB for community life to be used for arts, crafts, IT, events, an artisan market place.

There is a link to the most recent UCFP newsletter which outlines the plans and progress of the project and their Facebook page can be found here.
