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.”
