Cleanliness is next to Godliness!

We have recently provided cleaning services for St John’s The Baptist Church in Barnack and are extremely proud and pleased with the results which can be seen on the accompanying photographs.

When worshippers go into their house of worship, they expect it to be a clean and welcoming environment.  Churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues are places where people gather as a community so it’s important that these facilities are clean and fresh for services and meetings.

Our professional cleaners have respect for every church and treat them with the utmost care. We know church cleaning requires attention to detail especially when it comes to the handling historic artefacts.

We can vacuum, dust, which is often in hard to reach places or little used areas of a church, clean windows and carpet cleaning services.  These services are not exclusive and we can meet all your cleaning needs.

We have flexible cleaning schedule so we can work around your service schedule to ensure that your facility is always clean for services. We can also provide cleaning services for weddings, funerals, and other special events.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness… We love this phrase when it comes to cleaning churches and other spiritual temples. ????

‘’This phrase was first recorded in a sermon by John Wesley in 1778, but the idea is ancient, found in Babylonian and Hebrew religious tracts’’

History of Barnack Church

Let us provide you with a bit of a history of Barnack Church.

Barnack Church spans many centuries and beings in the time of Anglo-Saxon England, before the Norman Conquest.

The church which now stands represents many periods of English architecture, although it is constructed almost exclusively of a single building material, Barnack Stone.

The oldest part of the church is the tower, the lower two stages of which date from about 1000 AD. The octagonal belfry and spire were added some two hundred years later.

The nave is of the late 12th, and early 13th, centuries. The pillars, which have finely decorated capitals, support three rounded arches on either side opening to North and South aisles.

At the end of the long 14th century chancel is the large East window, subdivided by fine stone tracery into five lancet-shaped lights. Between chancel and nave is an elaborate rood screen.

The Lady Chapel was built at the beginning of the 16th century. It is notable for two carved niches of the same period, one of which contains a contemporary sculpture of the Immaculate Conception that has survived desecration.

In the North aisle there is a splendid carving of Christ in Majesty which was found in the floor of the church some seventy years ago but which is thought to date from Saxon times. The font is of the 13th century and is also finely carved.

The stained glass is all comparatively modern but reflects a number of different styles. Among the plate is a communion cup and cover of 1569.

The Millennium Project

As a Millennium project the church brought the bells back into use.This entailed strengthening the tower and having a new bell cast at Taylor’s Bell Foundry in Loughborough The six bells, the oldest of which was cast in 1450, are now rung on most Sundays and festival days.
