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. A ‘Nectar Garden’ has been 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 always receive a warm welcome. Currently we are holding services on the first three Sundays of each month. The first two Sundays being Holy Communion and the third Sunday a lay led Morning Praise. For details of services in St Peter's and throughout the Benefice, click here.
Unfortunately during the current pandemic we have had to remove the carpeted area which parents and children made use of during services. We hope to reinstate this area as soon as possible.
At the moment the church is open 10am to 3pm each Wednesday offering a place for private prayer or reflection. As the a prayer request book has had to be removed but if you have a prayer request please contact our Rector Revd Jane Manley on 0118 971 2891 or email .

Back in June Revd Jane invited the school and parishioners to paint a stone to make a snake from the church gate to the porch. This was to celebrate St Peter's Day. Needless to say the people of Brimpton rose to the challenge. Here are some of the stones that have been decorated by some very artistic people. It is a joy to see the stones every day as I walk past. Even the bra stone that seems to go missing on a regular basis has made a special appearance for the photo session!!
Thank you all for making the church path look so stunning. It is not too late to add to the collection so please feel free to get painting.
