St Brandon's ChurchSt. Brandon’s is the parish church serving Brancepeth village and the surrounding area. (See map.)

Our purpose as a church is both to worship God and to share the love of God that we celebrate here, through our activities as a church and as individual Christians. Church members meet to worship God each week and at special times throughout the Christian year, and all are always welcome.

Our Priest-in-charge is Anna Brooker. She can be contacted on 0191 378 0578 or on rector@stbrandon.org.uk.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Precautions

As a church, we are committed to caring for our neighbours and doing our part to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Sunday services have now moved online. We are not able to gather together in St Brandon’s at present, but we are able to meet in other ways. For the time being, we will be holding our 10.15 Sunday morning services each week using videoconferencing. If you want to be involved, and would like simple instructions on how to join in, please email Hester Higton or call on 0191 597 4675. More information is available on our online worship page.

St Brandon’s church building is presently closed, in line with advice from government and from the Church of England.

The clergy and other members of the St Brandon’s congregation continue to pray for our community, with a particular focus on praying for those who are self-isolating or ill. If you have a prayer request, please email it to Deborah Hodge.

In all this, we are following current Church of England guidelines.

Visits, Prayer and Care

Please also do let us know if you are ever unwell or troubled, and would value a visit from a church member, or home communion. To arrange this, please contact Deborah Hodge.

Safeguarding

At St Brandon’s, we take the safety of children, young people, and vulnerable adults very seriously. You can find our safeguarding policies via the ‘About Us’ link in the menu above.

The Church of England offers a simple online tutorial promoting basic awareness of safeguarding issues. St Brandon’s Parochial Church Council recommend that all members of the congregation take this tutorial.
