Welcome to
St Dunstan's

Welcome to the parish of Monks Risborough with Owlswick.  Whoever you are, you are very welcome here.

We are a Christian community in the heart of Buckinghamshire, drawn together by the love of Jesus Christ, and looking to share His love throughout our local community. We don’t always get it right, but we do our best, and find God’s love and grace when we stumble.

Whether you’re exploring faith for the first time or looking for a church you can call home, whether you’re looking to be part of a community or are just curious, you are very welcome.

Memorial Service

A service to celebrate the life of Dr Tony Maisey will be held at St Mary’s Church on Wednesday 28th September
at 2.30 pm.  You can watch the service online here

Revised Covid News

In response to on-going concerns surrounding Covid-19, we continue to strive to offer worship that is joyful and life-giving, whilst also taking precautions to keep everyone safe.

Singing

We have reintroduced sung music to our 10.00 am Sunday services, and all services of Evensong.

Spacing in St Dunstan’s

The pews in St Dunstan’s to the east of the crossing are free of restrictions. The pews at the west end of the church are kept as an area for those who wish to remain socially distanced.  Please ask a sidesperson if you require assistance.

Masks and Ventilation

The wearing of masks is a personal choice; we warmly encourage their use, as this is a good way of keeping people safe.  Likewise, we will look to maintain good ventilation in the church wherever possible.

Services with smaller congregations

We have many services where is a smaller congregation and no singing: every Wednesday at 10.00 am, first Sunday of the month at 8.00 am, and the second Sunday at Owlswick at 9.00 am.

Bell Ringing at St Dunstan’s

 

Following the relaxation of restrictions related to the pandemic, we are once again able to ring the church bells at St Dunstan’s. The bells will be rung prior to the 10.00 am service on Sundays, and for practice between 7.30 and 9.00 pm on Thursday evenings.

We will endeavour to also give notice here of any additional occasions when the bells will be rung prior to a special service.

St Dunstan’s Church is now open daily
from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.

 The church may be closed to visitors occasionally, for example, during music practice.

Safeguarding

At St Dunstan’s and St Peter’s, the wellbeing and safety of all within our community is of paramount importance.
