Welcome
The website of St Michael’s – the ancient and historic church of Parish of Bray with Braywood. Made famous (or infamous!) in the popular ballad, the parish is widely known, because of the turncoat ways
of the Vicar of Bray.

The origins of the Parish Church can be traced back to the year 1293, though much has happened by way of restoration and repair, since. The boundaries of the parish have also altered over the years, no longer as widespread as once they were, parts of Windsor and Maidenhead are still within the bounds.

Worship in St Michael’s is based on a well-established pattern within the Anglican Communion. At the early morning Services of Holy Communion on Sundays we follow the Book of Common Prayer – as indeed happens at Evensong. Parish Communion at 10 o’clock on Sunday mornings is choral, the service being in the new Prayer Book, “Common Worship”, we use “Order One.”

SOCIAL COMMITTEE ANNOUNCE THREE TRIPS FOR 2018

Hot off the Press!!! This trip is sure to be very popular so get your booking in quickly.

‘More Tea Vicar!!’

WEDNESDAY 2nd MAY to FRIDAY 4th MAY 2018

Just to clarify, due to the nature of this visit, it is aimed at members of the congregation only.

Before retiring Richard our Vicar invited us to visit him in his new home in Caerphilly, so the main purpose of this visit, is to do just that. We decided to ‘pop down’ to Caerphilly for a couple of days to
visit Richard and Maureen, and also enjoy a short stay holiday...

We have booked bed and breakfast and evening meal at the Bryn Meadows Golf, Hotel and Spa which is situated a short distance from Caerphilly, it is set in 100 acres, with an 18 hole Golf Course. This four-star hotel offers beautiful views from the Blas and Bryn Meadows. The Restaurant serves local produce on a seasonal menu. Italian furniture is each room and Marble baths in each private bathroom, a flat screen television, a selection of toiletries, a mini bar and hairdryer is also included in each room. The Bryn Meadows leisure centre also has a 20 yards indoor swimming pool, Sauna and Hot Tub. Guests can also use the on - site Gym and spa.

Departure as usual is from Braywick Park Car Park (Stafferton Lodge) at 10.00 am, and we begin our journey to Wales. We anticipate arrival at our hotel mid- afternoon, allowing plenty time to relax and perhaps a swim, before joining Richard and Maureen at dinner at our Hotel.

Day two there is free time to explore Caerphilly, perhaps the Castle, before visiting Richard and Maureen’s new home. Richard and Maureen have invited us to afternoon tea. (Please be aware there is a short walk (uphill) to their home).

Day three we return to Maidenhead. We plan to stop at a National Trust property on our return journey and arrive back in Maidenhead between 6/7 pm.

Further details from Roy Gardner or Ken Amery.
