Welcome to the website of the Parish of Bushey which is formed of the churches of St James, St Paul and Holy Trinity. We are an outward-looking community which is part of the Diocese of St Albans and the world-wide Anglican Communion. People have worshipped God at St. James’s for over 700 years and, as the community has grown and developed, the churches of St. Paul and Holy Trinity were added in the 20th Century. Here we rejoice in God’s all-embracing love and everyone is warmly welcome at all our services and activities, irrespective of age, race or background.
Our main act of worship in each of our churches is the Sunday Eucharist and afterwards there is an opportunity to meet one another over refreshments. At other times there are services ranging from Prayer Book Choral Evensong or Benediction to a reflective Taize service or Reflective/Creative worship. On Holy Days there may be a Solemn Eucharist and most days the church is open for personal prayer and reflection as well as the Daily Offices of Morning and Evening Prayer. We aim to be an inclusive community worshipping and celebrating Jesus in all the colours of the liturgical rainbow!
Details of the services taking place each week can be found in the Weekly Notices (see menu on the right).
Exploring the parish using ‘Our Churches’ on the menu bar above, you’ll see that each of our churches has its own unique character – so whatever you’re looking for in a church, we hope you will find one that suits you here.
In addition to worship there are many social, musical and community events throughout the Parish for people of all ages, details of which can be found in the DIARY OF EVENTS on the Forthcoming Events page (see above). Whenever you join us, we look forward to welcoming you in person. If you would like to get in touch or have any queries then please email me rector or my P.A. Sue Morton sue
