Quorn Churches and Religion

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 Road mission.

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.

A separate section details Quorn Gravestone Transcriptions.
