Welcome to St Peter's Church, Brimpton
St Peter's Brimpton sits at the top of the hill in the centre of the village. The village war memorial marks the start of the gravel track that leads to the church and the footpath that starts in the church’s car park is popular with walkers. There are extensive views from the churchyard across to Kingsclere and a ‘Nectar Garden’ is currently being created in the grounds to attract wildlife. It is believed that there has been a church on the site since Norman times. The current building dates from 1868, click here for more information on the church's history.
We are a friendly church and you will receive a warm welcome. We have a carpeted area with child sized furniture and books, drawing equipment and babies' toys, which parents and children can make use of during any service.
Our services generally follow a regular pattern with two services a month: the first Sunday of the month is 9.15am Holy Communion, the third Sunday of the month is 10:45am Morning Worship – a service of about 45 minutes. Both services are followed by refreshments. You can find more information about the form of these services here. Where there is a fifth Sunday in a month services rotate around the benefice.
The pattern may change on special occasions such as Christmas and Easter. For details of services in St Peter's and throughout the Benefice, click here.
We endeavour to open the church daily from 10am to 4pm. The church offers a place for private prayer or reflection. There is a prayer request book at the back of the church and all requests are offered to God during the Sunday service.
St Peter's is one of six churches in the Benefice of Aldermaston and Woolhampton. For information about the Benefice, including who's who in the ministry team, Benefice news, services in our other churches, and events and activities, please click here.
