About Us

We are St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church…

the historic little white church with a great big heart located near the corner of Route 108 and Sundown Road in Laytonsville, MD and we’d like to invite you visit us to see all we have to offer.

 No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcomed here.

St. Bartholomew’s Mission is  to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit to a diverse community gathering in Laytonsville, Maryland.

For more than 200 years, St. Bartholomew’s has been deeply involved in our community in ways both big and small. Today, we continue to offer our parishioners and friends a place of prayer, peace and respite as well as many opportunities and ministries through which to serve both God and our community.

St. Bartholomew’s is part of the Episcopal Church in the United States, which traces its roots to colonial America. Our church was formally established in 1812. Our current church site was purchased at the turn of the last century and the corner stone laid in 1909.  St B's inside 2
