Welcome to 2bsd

2bsd is the collective name for the churches of Bucklebury, Bradfield and Stanford Dingley.
The parishes of Bucklebury with Marlston, Bradfield and Stanford Dingley are a group of three rural parishes, each with its own enthusiastic congregation and distinct styles of worship.
You are very welcome to join us at one of our weekly services. And, of course, feel free to contact one of our Ministers.

Thank you for visiting this website, and we hope to see you in person soon.

The rural parishes of Bradfield, Bucklebury with Marlston and Stanford Dingley are situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Royal County of Berkshire, roughly midway between Reading and Newbury and largely between the M4 and the A4. The River Pang, a tributary of the Thames, flows through the three parishes linking the villages of Bucklebury, Stanford Dingley and Bradfield, whilst the ridge to the south links the villages of Upper Bucklebury, Chapel Row and Bradfield Southend. Much of the area comprises farms, woodland and common.
