Welcome to St Leonard’s and St Paul’s. Bursledon is a lively parish, served by two churches, with a variety of activities and services to suit all ages. This site aims to give you an overview of all that happens, but more information is available through the office should you need it. Perhaps the best ways to keep on top of what is going on is to sign up for our newsletter by emailing the office and/or find us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/bursledonparish).
Broadly speaking St Leonard’s tends to be more traditional (though not always!) with a robed choir and organ, and St Paul’s more contemporary. However many of our congregation cross over between the two and the important thing is that we are one church worshipping in two places.
We have a strong focus on our work with children, families and young people. We aim to provide safe, fun and exciting opportunities for our under 18s to explore faith and life in ways that they can relate to and understand. All our groups for this age group are detailed under the ‘Youth & Kids’ tab on our website, but should you want to find out more please contact Suzanne Houston or John White who lead this work.
Whether you are just beginning to ask questions on the issues of faith, or have been on the journey for some while, our hope is that you will find in St Leonard’s and St Paul’s churches a place where it is comfortable and safe to explore. We look forward to meeting you and the team is always available if you would like to talk or find out more.
