Welcome to the churches of Botley, Curdridge and Durley
The government has allowed churches to open from 15th June, not for services but for socially distanced and supervised individual prayer. Our thanks to the wardens for procedures that allow us to do this safely for both welcomers and visitors.
Please note that the regulations do not permit group or led prayer and we have to comply with current coronavirus guidance. Like everything else, going to church is not how it was a few months ago, but we hope this the start of our church’s journey to whatever the “new normal” will be.
Durley Church is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-4pm.
Botley Church is open on Sundays and Wednesdays from 2-4pm.
Curdridge Church is open Tuesdays 1-3pm & Thursdays 10am-12noon.
Please kindly note that BCD church opening can only happen if we can get enough volunteers to act as stewards to welcome and give simple advice to visitors. This is a real opportunity to enable people who have not had access to their village church to come and pray. We will keep you informed.
CHURCH OFFICE OPENING HOURS: The Church Office is open Monday-Friday 9.30am-12.30pm. You can contact the office by email or send a message – click here.
We are the 3 churches of All Saints’ Botley, St. Peter’s Curdridge and Holy Cross Durley in Hampshire known as “BCD”. We run as a benefice which means we have one priest, Revd. Gregg Mensingh, who is responsible for all 3 churches and is supported by a team of retired clergy and readers. We actively support the ordination of women.
On this website, you can view pictures from our churches, find out what activities are happening, see service times, contact the Church Office directly, find out about weddings, baptisms, and much, much more. You can also follow us on Facebook!
Why not pop into the Church Office or look around our lovely churches. You can donate fFodbank items at each church, pick up local magazines and leaflets or just take time to sit peacefully and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
In the foyer of All Saints’ Church in Botley, there is a free library and opportunity to buy a wide range of books including fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and DVDs. Any member of the local community is welcome!
