Churches & Services

If you know of a church with BCP services which is not currently listed on our website or if our details are out of date, you can help us out by submitting the details to the website. To do this, for new Churches please click on ‘Submit a BCP Service’ (on the left-hand side of this page), or to correct an existing church , find your church in the database and click the 'Modify Details' button.

The modify and new service options will send a copy of your suggested changes to our website moderator who will make the necessary changes to the listing. The updates are done on a monthly basis, so do allow some time for the changes to appear online. 

Service Finder

We are dependent on volunteers and website visitors to maintain this information, and regrettably we cannot guarantee that the details will be fully comprehensive or always up to date (although we do our best).

We provide these details as a guide to help you locate Book of Common Prayer services in your location, but for the most comprehensive information, you may want to do carry out additional research.

How to find a Prayer Book service

  1. Using this Service Finder, you can search by Diocese and scroll through the complete list (if you have the time!), or search for a particular place name. To do this, use the general ‘Search’ box in the top right-hand corner of this website. Try various place names around the geographical area you’re searching in.
  2. If you find a promising church, please bear in mind that the times and types of services can change and we may not be aware of this, so try to double-check. You can do this using the contact details we provide, or by going to the parish website if available. If these details are not shownn, try an online search.
  3. Go to A Church Near You, a website provided by the Church of England which lists all the parish churches in England. Here, you can search by place name or postcode to find every church within a given area, with service times and details listed (provided the church in question has updated its entry). If you also enter ‘Book of Common Prayer’ in the ‘tag’ box, this will bring up services in the area that the churches themselves have flagged as being BCP.
  4. Please be aware, however, that churches don’t always use the BCP tag on A Church Near You, so if suitable BCP services don’t come up, this doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t any. Check parish websites for further details, or contact churches directly and ask.
