St. Mary's is the parish church of Bruton and seeks to play an active part in the life of this vibrant community. The past two years have been difficult for us all, and St. Mary's is no exception. As together we now begin to emerge from lockdown and isolation, we intend not only to resume the best aspects of our tradition but also to find new and imaginative ways to live out the Gospel message of hope which we have received and which we seek to pass on.
We very much hope that you will join us and be part of this, in whatever way you can.
Community Fete 16th July at the Bruton Unionist Club
This year's fete will be on the 16th July, 11am - 4pm, at the Bruton Unionist Club. We're looking forward to a fun-packed day! Plenty of food, drink and music, a bouncy assault course, lots of stalls including books, home produce, cakes, crepes and gin. There will also be children's games, a tombola and the traditional Tug of War for those who fancy muscling up a bit.
We will also be having an Open Mic begining at 5pm to continue the festivities into the evening.
We very much look forward to seeing you there!
Grateful thanks go out to the Unionist Club for hosting our event this year.
Bruton Supports Ukraine
Working together with others across the whole town, we are looking to find the best way of co-ordinating the efforts of individuals and groups from Bruton and the surrounding area as we seek to find the best and most effective ways of helping people fleeing Ukraine and seeking refuge. The government has announced its 'Homes for Ukraine' scheme and we are intending to work with experienced national charities as they put together some training and advice for people willing to host refugees. We are part of a group co-ordinating this work in the Bruton area.
For current information and updates click here and please watch this space as the scheme develops.
