St Mary the Virgin, Brighstone


We extend a warm invitation to you to join us for worship, or any other parish activities.

A medieval church dating from 1190AD, with modern facilities and always open to visitors for quiet prayer or to find a place of peace.

SMTVFontA place of significant history – three former Rectors have become Bishops; saintly hymn writer Thomas Ken, Samuel Wilberforce (the youngest son of William Wilberforce) and George Moberly.

In Brighstone we seek to serve our village community by providing a variety of worship styles, using the Prayer Book (BCP), Common Worship (CW), as well as less structured styles of worship.

Here’s what the mystery worshiper had to say about St Mary’s
