Church of St Bartholomew in Oake

St Bartholomew’s is beautiful in its simplicity and peaceful in its location on the edge of the village behind Oake Manor Golf Club.

A great deal of history sits within the 13th Century walls of St Bartholomew’s Church. In 1535 the monks from Taunton Priory ensured the preservation of a beautiful arched window from their derelict monastery by carrying it to St Bartholomew’s (though if you look carefully you will see that it was installed the wrong way round!)

This little sacred church and its grounds are well loved and cared for, respecting its historic traditions as well as embracing more informal group worship in its new meeting space in the south aisle.
