We are a Bible-based church with a traditional Anglican liturgy. We use the 1979 version of The Book of Common Prayer and celebrate the Eucharist (communion) every Sunday as part of our worship service. St. Bartholomew’s provides a safe place for families and individuals in Hempstead and surrounding areas to seek, serve, love, and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

We are deeply committed to the Waller County community and are known for our annual Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner in November, our popular Vacation Bible School, and our association with the Katie S. Urban Foundation and Youth Center. With God’s help, we hope to extend our ministries and the events that benefit both the members of the church and the community of Hempstead.

We are proud of our Episcopal and Anglican heritage and invite you to share with us as we journey together with Jesus Christ’s ever-present loving guidance. If you are looking for a Bible-based, family-oriented church in Hempstead or Waller County, come worship with us this Sunday. Services start at 10:00 am. We also invite you to join us afterward for refreshments and fellowship.
