It is difficult to overestimate the importance
of the church to the people of Quorn and the development of the village.
This section covers the three religious organisations in the village
- the Parish Church (St Bartholomew's), the non-conformist Baptist
Church and the Methodists. You will also find references to minor
or more obscure religious movements such as spiritualism and the Barrow
Documented here are not only the churches and their spiritual and administrative procedures, but plenty of references, cuttings and photos concerning church-related activities such as clubs, events, fetes etc.
