WELCOME


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.
Service of the Eucharist from Stubbings for the whole Parish of Burchetts Green
News and Greetings from the Revd John Ainslie

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

Second Sunday of Epiphany



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

I do hope you are managing to keep as well as can be in these difficult times. We are all friends and neighbours together, so if there is anything you need (or you just want to have a chat with someone) do keep in contact with one another, or with myself or anyone else from the Church.

In these trying times, I invite you to join us in two exciting new ventures:

You will see above a recorded Eucharist for this Sunday. This Common Worship service was recorded in St James-the-Less Stubbings and has been deliberately kept to 30 minutes for ease of viewing. Expect to see other Sunday Services (including BCP Holy Communion) in future weeks. The readings are as per the attached Readings sheet.

I also invite you to join me in a half hour zoom session of fellowship and prayer at 5pm this Tuesday 19th January. There will be the opportunity to chat together followed by a simple evening office of prayer and a bible reading. Just send me an email on revjohnainslie@gmail.com  and I will forward the log-in details.

No service book is required (the words will appear by magic on your screen) and no previous experience is needed – all are welcome, whether we are used to seeing you in church or not. A chance to catch up with your neighbours and to listen-in as we pray for our community. We hope to make this a regular feature during lockdown.

Our churches are open for private prayer every day as follows:

St John’s Littlewick Green – open every day 11am – 4pm, with lights on and music playing
St Mary the Virgin Hurley – open every day 8am – 3.30pm

The Gospel reading for this week (John 1: 4-end, which you can find on the Readings Sheet) is an account of Jesus calling two of the first disciples, Philip and Nathaniel.

I can be contacted on revjohnainslie@gmail.com and 01628 629827 (do leave a message on the confidential answering machine if I don’t answer). Emails to our Parish Office office@burchettsgreenparish.org are being monitored and responded to.
We pray for the recently departed and especially for the repose of Jacquie Telfer and Joyce Bennett, whose funerals will take place in coming days. We pray for their families, and all who mourn the loss of a loved one at this time.

Heavenly Father,
Pour out your blessings upon us,
And upon those for whom we pray,
That we may be comforted and strengthened
By your almighty power to protect and heal.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,
Our Lord and Saviour,
Amen.
As you can see the Weekly Prayer Sheet from the Hurley Oasis Group is available via a Link on this page and there is also a link to sign-up to receive the weekly email Newsletter, for anyone you know who might like to receive it regularly.
