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 currently holding a United Benefice Service (a Service for both St Mary’s and All Saints’ churches) at St Mary’s at 10.00 am each Sunday. This is a Communion Service but we are only able to give the bread, not wine because of government regulations. The service lasts about 45 minutes, we are not allowed to sing hymns, but music will be played. Worshippers need to be socially distanced and have to wear a mask. The pews are marked so you know where you can sit. The toilets will be open during the service.
We do realise that several regular worshippers may not feel ready to return to church, so our online ‘Spiritual Communion’ services will continue for the time being. These can be found here Services
St Mary’s Church is also open for Private Prayer twice a week on Sundays and Wednesdays. The Church will be open on Sunday from 9-10am and Wednesdays 9am- dusk.
Unfortunately, while the building work continues, All Saints Church remains closed at this current time.
Churches are able to start services again for Weddings & Funerals from 4th July. For more information please click here:Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals
