Hello and welcome!
If you’re new to St Mary’s or to Burghfield and Burghfield Common, we’d like to welcome you to our community. We hope that this page will answer some of your questions about church life in Burghfield.
If there’s anything else you’d like to ask, speak to Reverend Glynn or one of the Churchwardens.
When are the services?
We normally have one main service every Sunday at 10:00am. This is usually a Communion service with a mix of traditional and modern hymns. Our music group plays most Sundays, though we also use ‘a hymn box’ occasionally. We have refreshments after this service, when there’s an opportunity to meet newcomers and chat together. –
This service is currently being held in church and via Zoom to offer an opportunity for people to join in our worship from home.
All the details to join us for our worship can be found under 'Services' in our Pew Sheet.
On the third Sunday of the month we have Breakfast@Church at 09:00am which is an opportunity for anyone of all ages to have a light breakfast together (including bacon butties) and enjoy some fellowship before the 10:00am Service.
You are most welcome to come and have a look around St Mary's Church or to just sit and find some peace. The Church is open during the day, every day of the week.
