Brinkburn Priory: in the parish of Longframlington with Brinkburn

Ongoing services in the parish of Longframlington with Brinkburn at St Mary's Longframlington are shown below.  Further information about these services and other activities can be found on the website for St Mary's Longframlington, where the following services are normally held:

A service of Holy Communion is celebrated in St Mary's on Sunday mornings at 09:20

On the first Sunday of each month there is normally a service of Evening Prayer in St Mary's

A service of Morning Prayer is held in St Mary's each Wednesday morning at 09:30, and can also be accessed by Zoom

Worshippers at St Mary's are encouraged to continue to take precautions and to respect the needs of others to maintain social distancing.

Brinkburn Priory is normally opened by English Heritage only from Easter to October. While in the 2022 season there is no longer a legal requirement for COVID precautions, English Heritage still limit admissions to avoid large numbers at any given time, and recommend pre-booking to avoid unnecessary queueing.  See the English Heritage website for full details of opening arrangements.  

Brinkburn has become a popular wedding location, the Priory Building as a beautiful setting for a marriage service, complemented by catering at the neighbouring hospitality venue.

Church events whether based in Longframlington or at the priory are advertised on the St Mary's website, and may also be publicised on the St Mary's Facebook page, #SMCLongfram.  Non-church events arranged by, or in conjunction with, English Heritage are advertised by them

Ascension Day Choral Eucharist service had become a modern tradition at Brinkburn in recent years. It was not possible in 2020, 2021 and 2022, but we hope that it may be possible to resume the tradition  in 2023.  The acoustics of the building make this a tremendous experience.  Other services may be held during the English Heritage season.

In addition, English Heritage normally arrange a programme of events in the priory building at weekends during the summer months.  We will include any information we receive from English Heritage about such activities here, but for complete information you should contact English Heritage
