St Owen’s church has been a place of worship for the village of Bromham since the thirteenth century. In early records it was referred to as St Andrew’s Church, and no one knows why it became St Owen’s, nor exactly when, although it was most likely during the 18th century; it is however the only church dedicated to St Owen on the British mainland.
We are excited that our extension, providing toilets, a kitchen and a meeting room, is progressing well, and we look forward to being able to use it sometime this year. The fundraising for this project has been undertaken by the Friends of St Owen’s (FoSO) who support the church in many ways – visit their website for more information: FoSO .
We are beginning to hold services in St Owen’s again as pandemic restrictions are eased; you are welcome to join us but please note that in this time you need to let us know you are planning to come so we can ensure socially-distanced seating arrangements. You can always join us online for our Zoom services on Sundays at 10.30am and 6pm: visit the Services page for the links and joining information.
We have a pipe organ, a choir, and a peal of 8 bells, which all contribute to our welcome and worship. More details can be found on the appropriate pages under the ‘Activities’ tab.
Children and families are always welcome to St Owen’s, and we look forward to the time when we will be able to meet together and have fun in the church again. Our Zoom services include an activity to engage the children with the theme of the service.
For more information on our activities for children and young people, see the Young people page.
St Owen’s has close links with our Church School, Bromham Primary School, and enjoys visits from the children when possible. Our Vicar Catherine is a Governor and enjoys going to school to lead Collective Worship, or leading online at the present time!
When we are not in lockdown there are various social activities including weekly Friendship Lunches, coffee mornings, and a churchyard gardening group – see the Social page; there is also a Bromham Prayer group which meets on a Thursday morning (see the Faith page).
