He dedicated his life to Queen and Country. 9th April 2021
God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip, for his love of our country, and for his devotion to duty. We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
Welcome to the Parish of Burchetts Green's website. We are a welcoming community based around three local churches. We hope you will find this a useful introduction to our activities
Each church has its own worshipping and social life but we join together for the monthly Parish Service and for a wide variety of social, practical and learning groups.
Whether you're just browsing, or looking for a place to worship, we are happy you have found us. Do come and join us at one of our groups or services. You will be made very welcome.
