From 18th February for 8 weeks the church will be closed for re-decoration and refurbishment, services will be held in the Church Room except on Easter Sunday when the 10am communion service will be held at All Saints Church Thorney Hill.

Burley Church is the Parish Church and centre of worship in Burley where Christians of all dominations are welcome. It is dedicated to St John the Baptist and is part of the Deanery of Christchurch within the Diocese of Winchester.

We seek to serve the whole community offering friendship and support as well as spiritual guidance, and worship so that all God's people may know of his unconditional love made known in Jesus Christ. The Vicar and trained Lay Pastoral Visitors visit people in their homes and when requested will offer prayer and home communion.

In the run up to Christmas and Easter. The Vicar and other members of the Church are also seen in the local school quite frequently supporting the staff and children.

Café Church
Although not a new idea within the Anglican Church, we have recently introduced Café church as a means of outreach to our local community. Usually we meet at 10am on a fifth Sunday if there is one in the month. We meet in a local venue such as one of the Village Halls or the Charcoals Suite in the Burley manor Hotel, in an informal gathering. We offer breakfast and craft activities both for adults and young people and these are based on current issues such as inclusive community, appreciation and care of our natural environment. The meeting, which lasts about one hour, ends with the ‘Godspot’ that includes a hymn or song, a short reflection on the theme of the day and prayers. We welcome everyone to this meeting, especially those who would like to know more about Christian faith and worship.
