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

In Brighstone we seek to serve our village community by providing a variety of worship styles, using the Prayer Book of 1662, (the BCP), the new Prayer Book, Common Worship (CW), as well as less structured styles of worship.

Here's what the mystery worshiper had to say about St. Mary's after a recent visit


Brook ChurchSt. Mary's Brook

St Mary's Church Brook is visible for many miles, and serves to remind us of the presence of God within our community, and testifies to his goodness.

The Church has seen many alterations since its origin in the 12th century. Much of the visible architecture dates from the 15th century. The screen in the cheke chapel was designed by John Seely, 2nd Lord Mottistone, and errected in 1948 in memory of his father.
