The Church in the Wood
It is situated in a wood on Bramdean common. The bell can be heard 15 minutes before each service to guide prospective worshipers.The charity of Louisa Francis Catherine Bishop for Divine Service has three independent trustees responsible for maintaining the church as specified by a codicil to her will.
Evensong is celebrated on the second and fourth Sundays of each month from May to September at 3pm, with a carol service in December. Baptisms and wedding blessings, sometimes of gypsies, also take place quite frequently.
The church has no parish and no funds apart that donated by the congregation, which averages 17 at evensong with greater numbers attending special open air services.
