The parish magazine of St Bartholomew's Church, Sydenham
Our magazine is published ten times per year, and is distributed free to every address in the parish (more than 3500 homes). People who live outside the parish but attend church may collect copies from the church.
We welcome contributions, including articles, photos or story ideas. Please get in touch with the editor if you have any ideas or comments.

We now have a small ads option. £5 buys up to three lines to sell your bike, sofa and so on. Send your copy to Peter Stubbs, as per the magazine, enclosing £5.
Collators and deliverers
We are able to call upon lots of volunteers to help us deliver the magazine through people's letterboxes. We are indebted to all their hard work, not to mention the time they give up, sometimes at a moment's notice. We couldn't make this magazine a success without them.
We urgently need to increase our delivery team by 12 people. Please contact Molly Wickert if you can help.
Many people write and provide material for the magazine, including Father Michael, the vicar of St Bartholomew's. Their input is invaluable and we thank them very much.
