St Mary's Church Brecon
Its perpendicular Buckingham Tower - the finest in Powys - dominates the landscape, making it the most prominent building in Brecon. Dedicated in honour of Our Lady, worship has been offered here for over 900 years. Following our Benedictine forbears, our open, inclusive and forward-looking community hopes to provide a place of prayer and refreshment where all are welcome. In so doing we are a living witness to the Good News offered by Our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
St Mary's is part of the Church, the Body of Christ; we seek to proclaim the Gospel in word and deed making known the presence of Christ through:
Worship - which is both sacramental and scriptural; values our Anglican heritage; seeks to be inclusive and relevant to all; empowers us to a life of holiness and makes us alive to serve God in the world.
Welcome - which recognizes in all the presence of Christ; reflects Christ as we strive to be a community of love; reaches out to all irrespective of race, gender, sexuality or creed.
Witness - which nurtures a relationship with the people of our parish; exists for the transformation of the local community; serves that community through love and hospitality; gives glory to God.
Following a relaxation of the rules allowing public worship to resume in churches I am delighted to announce that from Tuesday 11th August 2020 St Mary's will reopen for public worship. There will be a celebration of the Holy Eucharist every Tuesday at 11.00am. Please make sure you arrive by the north door in plenty of time so that we can take your details for contact tracing. You will also be told where to sit and asked to exit the door via the south door opposite St Mary's Bakery.
Please contact Fr Steven if you wish to have further clarification regarding baptisms or funerals.
