Our churchess are now meeting again for gathered worship. Whilst many are able to join physically, some are still unable to. This is why the 2bsd Church YouTube channel is continuing to broadcast our online Sunday services.
Our normal programme of services is running:
8am St Mary's BCP Holy Communion
9.30 St Mary's
9.30 St Peter's
11am St Denys'
11am All Saints'
Services will be somewhat different - a little shorter and without singing, and with socially distanced seating amongst the changes. Masks will need to be worn correctly in church. Receiving of Holy Communion is restricted to bread only (rather than using a shared cup).
All our online services can be found on our YouTube Channel - 2bsd Church. There is also a 2bsd Facebook page (Browser / Android app / iOS app) which will be updated too. However, please keep an eye on this website for more information as it becomes available.

Sunday Morning Service Live-stream
All our churches are now meeting in person, although with continued restrictions and social distancing. However, if you're unable to join us, you can still be part of our worshipping community through our live-stream service from St Mary's, Bucklebury at 9.30am.
9.30am from St Mary's, Buckkebury
9.30am St Peter's, Bradfield Southend also has a Zoom link to services. If you'd like to join, please contact Jules or the Church Office for details.
We hope that this will be a help and a blessing to you as we worship God together.
The live-stream service can still be viewed later on YouTube, though it might be a little later in the morning.
‘2bsd’ is the collective name for the parishes of Bucklebury and Marlston, Bradfield, and Stanford Dingley. We are situated in the heart of West Berkshire, within the Diocese of Oxford. Each church has its own regular congregation and distinctive style of worship, ranging from traditional through to more contemporary. However, we share many things and are working together to share the good news of Jesus Christ, and see his Kingdom growing in this area.
Our aim is ‘To Know Christ and to Make Him Known.’ Christian faith is good news – that God loved the world so much that he sent his Son, Jesus, to save it. For Christians, all of life should be lived out of gratitude and service because of what God has done for us through Jesus Christ.
They say life is a journey. The Christian faith is no different. We are on a journey, growing in our knowledge and love of God, and his love for us. Whether you have started this journey yourself, or you’re not sure yet what Christianity is really all about, we’d love you to come and join us.
