Regular worship
Following the advice of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, we have suspended public worship at all three of our churches to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We encourage you to continue to pray at home. The Church of England has put together some prayers for use at this time. Click here to read the prayers, which you can also download as pdf files.

Chelmsford Cathedral are now live streaming morning and evening prayer each day on their Facebook page and the Diocese plan to publish videos and podcasts for us to share with you to help you worship in your own home.

Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
As at 23 March 2020 the Government has said that Baptisms and Weddings may no longer take place.
Funerals at the graveside or crematorium may may still take place but only immediate family members can attend (if the crematorium allows) – that is, spouse or partner, parents and children, keeping their distance in the prescribed way.
These restrictions will be reviewed in three weeks time.

We are in the process of contacting those who already have weddings and baptisms arranged with us. At present we are concentrating on those with dates until the end of June, and will contact others in due course. If you have any urgent queries before then please contact us via email or the Parish Office telephone 07485 039204. Please note that as we do not currently have a full time Rector, you may not receive an immediate reply.
