CHURCH INFORMATION & FEES

What is a Church?

Our Churches belong to everyone.

 

A church is more than bricks and mortar. It is a community of people who, together, live in relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

There is a church at the heart of every community. And each one puts its faith in action. Our churches run food banks and night shelters, host exercise classes, organise farmers markets, and so much more.

St Mary's Church, Kelvedon

St Mary the Virgin is a grade I listed building, dating back to the 11th century.  The church can seat over 300 in the pews, possibly 400 with chairs in open spaces. 

A sound reinforcement system has been installed. The peal of 8 bells is heavy.  The tenor bell was cast for the 1951 Festival of Britain.  There is an active Tower organisation, and sufficient ringers can be brought in to cover Sunday mornings and most other occasions when a peal is appropriate. 


In 1993 a sympathetic extension was added to the north side of the church, giving two good-sized rooms, plus a vestibule capable of separate use.  The extension incorporates a small kitchen and toilet facilities.

The original churchyard is no longer used for burials but there is an extension to the churchyard on the other side of Church Street.

 

A church has stood on this site for over 850 years – that's not long after the Conquest by Duke William of Normandy. Since then – both before and after the Reformation continuous worship has been offered to the Glory of God.

 

If you need peace, silence, time to think, our church is open everyday during daylight hours.

All Saints' Church, Feering

Feering parish church stands in a traditional rural setting close to the Village Green and the local pub. Like St. Mary's church it has stood sentinel over the village for over 850 years.

The church contains many fine features not least the glorious East window which glows jewel like and contains many scenes from Our Lord's Passion.
