The churches of St. Luke's Burton and St. Michael and All Angels, Sopley We are restarting our worshiping together as from 2nd August. It is good that we can start to worship together from this week. Our worship will be different to what we have been used to. These will be short, said, services with no singing. There will be no sermon (there is on the online services). If you are attending please do wear suitable face covering. There will be hand sanitising as we go in and out of church and seating will be socially distanced – please follow directions as to where to sit. Communion will be given in a safe way and we will do everything possible to make this a reverent and safe experience for us all.
The two churches of St. Luke's and St.Michael and All Angels are in the beautiful Avon Valley, just north of Christchurch. Burton is in Dorset and Sopley is in Hampshire. We aim to be friendly and welcoming congregations.
Our online services are continuing and can be found on our youtube channel - Benefice of Burton & Sopley. The link to the next service is shown above.
