St Mary the Virgin, Brighstone


St Mary’s is a family-friendly church, fully-accessible for wheelchair, mobility scooter and buggy users!   Toilet and kitchen facilities enable us to offer the church for community use and we regularly host a variety of fund-raising concerts for local charities.  Together with our sister churches we fund provision of outreach workers for isolated members of our community, and children and young people.  We extend a warm invitation to you to join us for worship, or any other parish activities.  If you enjoy or would like to try singing, handbell ringing, change ringing or play a musical instrument, please see the music page for more details and contact information.  To find out more about what is current in our church, please click on the following links which will take you to our newsletter:
