St Simon and St Jude, Bramdean

Founded in the twelfth century on a high point of land, the church of St Simon and St Jude is a listed building that has been altered over the centuries, particularly by the Victorians in the nineteenth century. A welcoming small church that can comfortably seat a congregation of one hundred, it has a wealth of stained-glass windows, a pair of bells, an electronic organ, Wi-Fi and access to excellent parking with toilet facilities. The east wall of the church very recently underwent extensive restoration; the building was also updated with new lighting and an eco-friendly central heating system. Two embroideries completed by residents in the last thirty years – the ‘Tree of Life’ (1989) and ‘Bramdean Village’ (1992 – 1998) – are displayed on the south walls. Every child baptised in the church has their name embroidered on a fabric leaf that is sewn on to the ‘Tree of Life’ which was modelled on the copper beech tree in the churchyard. The ‘Bramdean Village’ embroidery depicts homes and local scenes in and around Bramdean.

Services and Worship

Two services are held every month: the second Sunday of the month is Holy Communion at 9.30 a.m. and the fourth Sunday is Morning Worship at 11 a.m. To complement the regular pattern of worship, additional services for Easter, Harvest, Remembrance and Christmas are held which are always well attended.  The Parochial Church Council actively fund raises throughout the year with events that include the fete, a safari supper, a Bridge party and guest speakers.
