Parish events

The installation of the Revd Gemma Beesley will take place on Thursday 8th July.

We hope that the event will be face-to-face in church, but there will be a limited congregation, which will have to be by invitation only

The will be a Livestream broadcast of the service.  Details will follow.

The parishes will arrange for your meet Gemma informally in the weeks following her installation.

Parish notices

Gemma's installation is scheduled for Thursday 8th July at 7:30pm.

It is clear that we will not be allowed to fill the church for the event as we have done on previous occasions.  Indeed we may be limited to current capacity (which is very small).  Consequently we are putting arrangements in place that meet the two conflicting objectives:  get everyone involved and respect COVID safety requirements.

Attendance at the service will be limited and will be by invitation only.

However we will be broadcasting the service live on YouTube to allow as many people as possible to experience the event.  We will be publishing the details of this broadcast closer to the date, here on this website, in the Bernwode News and on the village Facebook page.

Meanwhile if you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact us either using our contact form or by email.

About the church

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.
