Church of England Diocese of Oxford Berrick Salome

Welcome to St Helen's Church, Berrick Salome!

Services for September and October

Our next service on Sunday 26th September at 11am is a Service of Holy Communion.

The Family Service on Sunday 3 October starting at 11 am will be our annual Harvest Festival. The service will be held inside the church and will be followed by a 'Bring and Share' lunch - either in the churchyard if weather permits, or inside the church - observing sensible coronavirus precautions.

Jonah and the Whale was the theme of the September Family Service, held in the beautiful autumn sunshine in the churchyard . You can read about it here
