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 the Reverend Glynn or one of the wardens: see our contacts page.
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.
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. Also on the third Sunday at our 10:00am Service we have provision for children’s church with a seperate age appropriate teaching.
For more details see our Service Times page.
Can I look round the church?
Yes. St Mary’s is open during the day every day of the week. You’re most welcome to look around, or to just sit and find some peace.
How can I find out about having my baby baptised?
We’re happy to discuss baptism with you. You can find out more about the service on our Baptisms page, and then contact us at the address above.
Can I get married in St Mary’s?
Yes, if you live in our parish, or have ever lived here, or have a connection with St Mary’s Church. There are certain rules about who may marry in the parish church, but you can find out more on our Marriage and Weddings page or by contacting Reverend Glynn.
I can’t find the answer to my question on this page!
Please contact us and we’ll try our best to help you.
