Welcome to The Burnhams Benefice

Thank you for visiting our site

Prayer for today
Father of all we thank you for the continued good news about vaccination against Covid-19, we pray for those organising the logistics of delivery and for those giving the innoculations, may they be able to successfully do this work.
If you would like me to pray for someone please send me a message to vicarsteve1@gmail.com


In the light of the Government’s guidance on preventing the spread of Coronavirus we are limiting the services in the Burnham benefice to a single   Sunday service of Holy Communion to be held in the parish church of St. Mary’s Burnham Market once lower infection rates permit. See the note in the latest news section.

Services Coming Up

2 January 2021

Please find below the link to this week's podcast service from the Burnham Benefice for the 17th January 2021. In collaboration with my church wardens in this benefice we have reluctantly decided that at the present it is prudent and cautious not to hold congregational worship.


It is my intention to offer a single service of said Sunday Holy Communion weekly in St. Mary's Burnham Market at some point during lockdown once our rates of infection begin to reliably and regularly fall. There are a number of factors which suggest St. Mary's would be a sensible place for these services, important among which is its size. When we reintroduce services all the precautions to which we have become accustomed, social distancing, sanitising, the special arrangements for receiving Communion, no singing, wearing of masks  and no mixing outside households or formal bubbles will be rigorously in place. Even so, I stress that worship will be offered, there is no obligation to attend and if you fall into one of the four groups deemed most at risk (those scheduled for early vaccination) I would urge you to think most carefully before deciding to come.

The churches remain open for private prayer in our usual rotation. ( Monday - Thursday TOWN) and if you would like to join me for morning prayer by zoom or telephone please be in touch.


with blessings
