Welcome to the parishes of Bradfield, Bucklebury and Stanford Dingley.
‘2bsd’ is the collective name for the parishes of Bradfield, Bucklebury and Marlston 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.
Our rural parishes are situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Royal County of Berkshire, roughly midway between Reading and Newbury and between the M4 and the A4.
