Welcome to St Mary's, Burwell and St Etheldreda's, Reach
Vicar Revd Canon Dr Eleanor Williams
We have restarted services in our church buildings and will also continue our online provision. This Sunday 13th June there will be a service of Holy Communion at 10am in St Mary's, Burwell, which will be live-streamed to Zoom. Later in the day you can join in here with a Carers Week service on Facebook at 3.00pm, repeated on Burwell Community Radio at 4.30pm. Our services are open to anyone, but to help us with our planning, please book via our usual booking page. Next Sunday 20th June there will be a service in Reach at 9.00am and St Mary's at 10.00am. To join in with our Zoom services and groups, please register here.
Our church buildings are open during the week for services and private prayer. St Etheldreda's in Reach will be open Sunday 13th and Thursday 17th June all day, and St Mary's, Burwell will be open Wednesday 16th June 10.00am for private prayer, with a service of Holy Communion at 11.00am.

We are delighted to announce that St Mary's has been awarded a Bronze Churchyard Conservation Award by the local Wildlife Trust. You can find out more about our new mowing plan on the boards in the churchyard, and more about how to explore St Mary's churchyard on our Trail Page.
We have set up a page here for resources to use for prayer and worship. Our Facebook prayers team is taking a break for the week beginning 14th June, but there are lots of previous videos of prayers which can still be watched. If you don't have a Facebook account, you can access our Facebook prayers on our main Facebook page here and our Refresh Café/Messy Church page here or by clicking on the links in the boxes on this page.
