The Parish of Burchetts Green

We warmly welcome you to join us at any of our services

Prayer Group -Oasis

Fortnightly on Tuesdays at 2pm Priory Room

Oasis is a chance to create space for us to unwind and let the silence in, making ourselves ready for God to come to us and help us in the many areas of life which cry out for his help. We will bring before God our own lives, those in the Parish we know who particularly need God’s touch and we will pray for the wider world.  More information from Sandra Brooks (822830) or Pat lies (822032).  Check the dates of meetings here>>.

What is Christianity all about?

A simple guide to this big question is available here>>. Christianity is about believing, relationships and community, the best way to find out about faith and prayer, to raise questions and to get help, is to meet some Christians which you can do at any of our services, or by asking to talk to our pastoral visitors - see below. Read some of the real life experiences which show how life-changing the Christian message can be here>>.

 How Do I Pray?

'Lord, teach us to pray'

That request was put to Jesus by his own disciples - which should encourage us if we feel we don't know how to pray. They needed help, and so often do we. But there isn't just one right way to pray - what works well for one person may not for another.

These thoughts are offered just as guidelines which may be helpful. A simple guide to prayer from our diocese is available here>>. If you're interested in developing your prayer life then the Prayer Guide site has over 100 pages of answers to questions on Christian prayer.

Pastoral Care

We have a team of pastoral visitors who have been commissioned to visit and offer spiritual support and friendship to people in the parish. This is organised through our Pastoral Care Co-ordinator Fiona Fieldhouse.   Please contact Fiona on 01628 824574 for details.

Church members pray regularly for those who are unwell or in need. If you would like prayer for yourself or someone close to you please contact us.

Book of Commemoration

If you would like your loved ones remembered in this book and prayed for on the Sunday preceding the anniversary of their death, you can contact the Parish Office on 820077 and fill in the form for the 'Book of Remembrance'.
