Like all churches at the moment, we are struggling to make ends meet.  
We would like to continue to:
  • serve God in our church and wider community
  • run our children's and youth work 
  • develop our wider ministry to the town
  • support our mission partners.
  • repair and protect our beautiful church building
Without your continued support none of this would be possible.

World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement and each year a different country prepares the annual service. This year the service has been prepared by the Christian women of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, and the theme is ‘Build on a Strong Foundation’.

Rev Paul Barer

The Right Reverend Paul Barber. 1935-2021

The Right Reverend Paul Barber, the first Suffragan Bishop of Brixworth, Assistant Bishop to the Dioceses of Bath & Wells, Archdeacon of Surrey and the former Vicar of St Michael's, Camberley and of St Thomas-on-the-Bourne in Farnham, has died at the age of 85.
Born on 16 September 1935, he was educated at Sherborne School and St John's College Cambridge. After undertaking National Service in the Royal Army Service Corps, he studied at Wells Theological College and, in 1961, was the first-ever priest to be ordained at the newly built Guildford Cathedral.
He was Curate at St Clare’s, in the parish of St Francis, Westborough, Guildford until 1966 when he and his young family moved to Camberley, where he became Vicar of St Michael's in Yorktown.
During his time in Camberley, he established a temporary shelter for homeless travellers and displaced, rough sleepers in the Church Room, fronting the A30 London Road. This became a welcome refuge to many vagrant men considered by others to be beyond help.
In 1973, he was appointed as Vicar of St Thomas-on-the-Bourne in Farnham and served as Rural Dean of Farnham from 1974 to 1979. He was a member of the Church of England’s General Synod from 1979-85 and, in 1980, he was appointed Archdeacon of Surrey.
For many years he captained the Diocese of Guildford’s clergy cricket team and also played for The Bourne CC and was later a president of Rowledge CC.
He was consecrated as the first Bishop of Brixworth at Westminster Abbey in 1989 and served as the Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese of Peterborough for twelve years, living in Northampton.
When he, and his wife Pat, retired to Street in Somerset in 2001, he was appointed as an honorary Assistant Bishop to the Dioceses of Bath & Wells.
As a knowledgeable and ardent sports fan, with a particular love of cricket, football and horse racing, he was a member of both Northamptonshire and Somerset County Cricket Clubs and a fan of Aldershot FC and Northampton Town FC.

In 2018, Paul and Pat returned to Surrey, moving to Chertsey to be closer to their family.

Paul died peacefully at home, with Pat at his side, on 22 February.

A memorial service to commemorate his life will be arranged at a later date.
