Welcome

To 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.


A two day visit to the Thursford Christmas Spectacular
Thursday 8 to Friday 9 November 2018

Those of you who attended last year’s show all agreed that it was truly spectacular and requested that we visit again, so we are pleased to announce that we have rebooked.

This will be the 42nd year of the Spectacular. The show has a £3M budget and is a three hour fast moving celebration of the festive season featuring seasonal music being sung alongside traditional carols. It is now generally recognised as being the largest show of its kind in the country, if not Europe. having a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians.

Thursford is in Norfolk so for our comfort, we are again having a ‘Sleepover ’at the Wensum Valley Hotel, which we found a good place to stay during our previous two visits.

Departure as usual is from Braywick Car Park, at 10.00 am, we will commence our journey to Norfolk, with a comfort stop on route. We plan to arrive at our Hotel mid-afternoon, allowing plenty time to unpack and prepare for Dinner. Friday morning we journey to Thursford where we will have ample time to view and enjoy to many exhibits and things of interest, perhaps have lunchbefore taking our seats in the theatre to see this wonderful show. The Christmas Spectacular show commences at 2 pm and finish at 5 pm at which time we will board our coach for the journey home.

A booking form with two post-dated cheques made payable to Roy Gardner will secure you’re your place on this visit. Cheque 1, £100 deposit per person, plus insurance if required before April 2018 Cheque 2 for the balance dated 1st September.

Price includes Coach, Hotel Dinner and Breakfast, The Show and Gratuities.
Please ensure that you have insurance cover for the visit. Motts coaches can provide this for £21.
If required.

Further details on all our trips may be obtained from Roy or me.
