The Formation of the Friends of St Bartholomew's

A public meeting was called on 5 April 2005 at Blacktown City Council to establish an advisory committee under s355 of The Local Government Act to be known as the Friends of St Bartholomews. Nominations were taken from the 5 local historical societies and community representatives to form a committee, The inaugural meeting for The Friends of St Bartholomew's was held on 30 May 2005.

The Committee aims to work with Blacktown City Council to publicise the heritage value of the Church and its surrounds, to assist Council to fundraise for the restoration of the graves and the church building, to provide educational programmes and community involvement, and mainly to protect and preserve the integrity of St Bartholomew's, "our church on the hill".

The first few months were spent working out a set of guidelines for the committee's operations. Council designed and printed two brochures for the promotion of St Bartholomew's, Prospect, one of which contains a general membership form.

Nowadays, the committee aims to enlarge membership and work towards our ideas and plans for the future care of the St Bartholomew's property.
