We welcome you to The United Benefice of Kelvedon & Feering. We have two churches in our Parish which are situated in adjacent villages in the County of Essex. The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Kelvedon and All Saints' Church, Feering.
We are delighted that St Mary’s will re-open on Sunday 28th June twice a week for private prayer, on Sundays 8.00 am - 12.00 noon and Wednesdays 2.00 - 5.00 pm. Do come and sit in the peace of our church building to pray, think or reflect. You will also be able to light a candle. Stewards will be in the church during these times. Social Distancing Guidelines will be adhered to and hand sanitiser will be available for your use.
For more information regarding the re-opening of St Mary's please watch this short video:
A reminder too that All Saints’ remains closed to the public while the building work continues. It is vital that we keep the builders on site safe during the week; Feering PCC also knows that it is too great a task to clean and re-order weekly a church undergoing major internal change and filled with building equipment and materials. The work is scheduled to finish by the middle of September.
Churches are able to start services again for Weddings & Funerals from 4th July, but before doing so we need detailed guidance from the Government and the Church of England, which has yet to arrive. Once we have this, and know what practical steps we must take to ensure safety, we will let you know if services will be possible.
