WELCOME - Suspension of Services

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

In the light of local infections, it has been decided to suspend church services until further notice. Fr John's newsletter is distributed weekly and our Sunday service is available to watch via YouTube and on this page. The churchwardens of St James the Less, Stubbings and St John the Evangelist, Litlletwick Green also distribute a regular news update for their individual churches.

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.
Service for Sunday for the Parish of Burchetts Green
News and Greetings from the Revd John Ainslie

The Second Sunday of Lent

A very warm welcome to all our friends and neighbours in the Parish of Burchetts Green. 

Our service for the Parish this week comes from St Mary’s Hurley, and you won’t need to listen too hard to hear the clock chiming during the service. In fact, it chimed at just that point in the service when the bread and the wine are being consecrated – made holy – by the power of the Holy Spirit in response to the prayers of Priest and people. This was completely unplanned by us as we proceeded to record the Eucharist in Hurley, but if you go to a ‘bells and smells’ High Church that is the point in the service when bells would be rung to celebrate the consecration. We felt very blessed by this coincidence (if that’s what it was….) of timing.
