Did you know?

 

Many children in the UK are growing up without knowing WHY we celebrate Christmas: 

36% of 5-7-year-olds have no idea that we celebrate Jesus’ birth at Christmas; 

51% of adults say that the birth of Jesus is irrelevant to their Christmas!

We invite you to prepare for Christmas with a series of daily Advent reflections by Embrace the Middle East. 

This Christian charity works alongside Christians in the Middle East to help their local communities free themselves from poverty and injustice.

Here in Wootton Bridge, we are most fortunate to have two church buildings to serve the needs of our parish: the pretty 930-year old Norman church of St Edmund’s at the far end of Church Road; and the larger, 20th-century brick-built church of St Mark’s on Station Road, near The Cedars pub.

Our Priest-In-Charge is Rev. Veronica Brown

Priest-In-Charge of three Parishes:
Binstead (Holy Cross)
Havenstreet (St Peter’s)
Wootton Bridge (St Edmund’s and St Mark’s)
