St Helen’s, Brigsley
St Helen’s Brigsley is in a time of transition and change, with a great deal of uncertainty about the future. In 2017, there were so few people able to come to worship, that sustaining regular Sunday worship became impossible. The two people who did worship regularly at Brigsley agreed that they would prefer to join with others in Waltham or at other churches in the group.
We are therefore in a period of occasional worship at Brigsley, and are exploring other ways to keep prayer alive in the village.
If you would like to learn more about what’s happening in Brigsley, or would like to help support public times of prayer, please fill out a contact form so that we can get in touch.
In June 2018, we had a community meeting to discuss the future of the church. You can find a copy of the letter sent to the community here. This was the first meeting of many, as we seek a way forward.
Update: Spring 2022
We are now in the latter stages of exploring closure. It has been many years since we have been able to gather a worshipping community or form a PCC. A group called Friends of Brigsley Church has formed to try to keep the church open, but it is not yet clear what the future will be.
If you would like to help the church stay open, what we need most are people of active Christian faith, who are willing to give time both to worship (currently in Waltham) and to the governance of the church (PCC members are charity trustees, and must be communicant members). Please ring The Revd Kimberly Bohan on 01472 822172 if you would like to learn more.
