Today, St Bartholomew's welcomed Reuben John Minshull, parents Steve and Emily and over a hundred guests to Reuben's baptism.

A chapel was demolished by John Minshull and a new church built on the site in 1541 but no Minshull has been baptised, married or buried in the church or churchyard since 1788, a gap of 231 years. John, who resided in Minshull Hall, became the first minister of St Bartholomew's and the church gave the village it's name. This made the service especially historic and special to all.
The Rev. Anne Lawson took the service and we welcome Rueben to God's family and the Minshulls back to the church of their ancestors.
