Our logo

The Friends of the Briery logo shows the main doorway on Victoria Avenue.

We chose this as our logo as it is an example of the beauty of this wonderful old building but, more importantly, it is a symbol of welcome.

We welcome all to this haven of tranquillity.

Who We Are & What We Do

The Friends of the Briery are here for moral and a little financial support.

Launched in the Summer of 2016, we raise money to fund the little extras which help to make The Briery such a lovely place for visitors – whether that is some new upholstery on comfortable chairs, a Chapel microphone, fitted sheets or table mats….

We come together each summer for a Garden Party (family and friends also welcome) and each winter for a Service and afternoon tea.  Eventually we may have our own special retreat days, focusing on friendship and support.

If you would like to join us, or just want more information, you can  click below to download the brochure, or telephone us and just ask.

Summer Garden Party 2018

The next Garden Party will be on Sunday 1st July from 2-4pm. We are arranging the music and entertainment; along the same lines as previous years but a little different.  The scones will be freshly baked and there’ll be more cakes to buy, as well as the raffle and tombola!

We hope all of our Friends are able to join us again… and remember to bring a friend!
