Brill

All Saints’ Church commands a prominent site in the village. It started life as a royal chapel to the adjacent royal Palace or hunting lodge in the 11th century. The earliest part of the church is the nave, built in the 12th century and over time the Church has been altered to what is seen today.

We have a highly talented adult choir who lead our monthly choral communion service.  The church is used as a venue for occasional services and concerts by Brill C of E school. The church also hosts a variety of concerts during the year.  We have a peal of 6 bells and an active group of ringers. We are lucky to have many volunteers who clean the church, mow some of the grass, arrange flowers etc, who are not necessarily active church goers. Villagers and visitors alike appreciate the fact that we have a policy of keeping the church open during daylight hours.

New lockdown restrictions

The government has accounced new lockdown restrictons that mean that we will not be able to hold church services for at least 4 weeks.

Alternative on-line options are available:

Some churches will open during daylight hours for individual prayer.  Please see the separate notice on the front page or on the relevant parish page.



The vacancy

As you will be aware we in a "vacancy" and have no full time priest.   We have now started the process of finding a new priest to fill the vacancy and have advertised the position in the Church Times and on line.  

In the meantime Jenny, supported by Peter and other lay members will be supporting the benefice during this time.

If you have a question, we recommend that a Churchwarden should be the first port of call, if appropriate to your circumstances.  You can find the list of Churchwardens in Who's Who.

The new lockdown regulations allow churches to open for individual prayer.   At present the following churches intend to open as follows:
