Please contact the Rector, Anthony Smith for further details.

The Choir
The choir sings at the main service on each Sunday and at major services through the year. Practice is on Thursday evenings at 8:00 followed by refreshments at a nearby establishment. The choir sings at weddings and occasionally a concert is put on.

Bell Ringers
The campanologists of Burghclere ring for Sunday services and weddings and other special requests. Our normal ringing time is on a Sunday 9.00 am - 9.30 am. We practice regularly on a Wednesday from 7.30 pm - 9.00 pm. Occasionally we might ring a quarter peal to celebrate a particular marriage and on very important occasions a full peal may be rung. If you would like to know any more information please contact the Tower secretary, Miggie Bruce or Ros Brandwood for more details.

Church Flowers
A small but enthusiastic band of casual flower arrangers run a Rota throughout the year to keep the Church decorated weekly.
The pulpit at Harvest. All come together for the Christian Festivals when we decorate the whole of the Church, mostly with flowers from our gardens or the hedgerows.
If you would like to come and join us you would be very welcome. No experience or participation necessary on a Sunday! Perhaps you may like to arrange on a special week of the year in memory of a loved one.
Florists are often used for special occasions. We can help with some of the mechanics by providing pedestals, window brackets, window boards and pew end hangers. We do ask that after such an occasion, at least one pedestal arrangement is left for the Church users to enjoy.
