Latest news

20 October 2018

Edited 21 October 11:25 (to explain more about flowers and colours).

We are very sad to report that Marrianne Stevens died peacefully in hospital from her illness on 16 October.

Marrianne’s funeral service will be at St Paul’s on Thursday 1st November (All Saints' Day) at 12.30pm with the commital at the Forest Park crematorium at 1:30pm. There will be a reception in the Princess Suite at the Hallmark Prince Regent hotel opposite the church from 1:15pm (immediately following the service) until 6:00 pm.

To celebrate Marrianne's love of flowers and colour, ladies attending the funeral are asked to wear flowery clothing — perhaps flowery ties for the men? Len will wear a button-hole of flowers from their own garden.

Please note Len and Marrianne’s wishes regarding flowers. No wreaths should be brought or sent, but sprays or bunches sprays of flowers in Mothers Union colours of white and pale blue (or any other colour matching white if blue is hard to come by) would be welcome to line the pathway from the hearse to the church. These will afterwards decorate the church for the Sunday Service.

Donations in memory of Marrianne may be made to St Paul's church (cheques payable to ST PAUL’S PCC) and will be split between three charitable causes important to Marrianne: the Kenyan Street Children feeding fund, the English for Women project adopted by Chelmsford Diocese Mothers' Union and St Paul's Youth and Children's work.

Who we are

We are a Christian Parish Church in Essex in the Diocese of Chelmsford, and part of the Church of England. We are here to spread the ‘Good News’ about God and his Son Jesus Christ.

The Bible says “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). That means those who ‘follow’ Jesus Christ, who love his company, respect his teaching, trust his promises and are prepared to let this affect their lives.

Life events

Contact the Vicar to arrange a baptism, wedding or funeral.

Groups and activities

We are a friendly church and you will find a warm welcome at our services and church groups.

For children, we have a Children’s Sunday Church Club every Sunday at 10:00 in the hall, we run Children’s Holiday Clubs and we have a Christian Playgroup which runs each morning in our Church Hall.

For Senior Citizens, we run a Seniors’ Coffee morning on the first Thursday in each month.

We have an active Mothers’ Union and our Textile Group has created inspiring and colourful banners for the church and meets fortnightly.

“Just for Girls” meet fortnightly on a Tuesday morning from 10—12 noon for Worship, Meditation, Prayer and Fellowship. The group is open to women who are members of St Paul’s church. Please contact Pauline Bolding for further details.

Wheel Chair Access Sign St Paul’s welcomes anyone who is disabled - our Church has disabled access facilities through the South Door off the Main road, and a hearing loop for anyone using a hearing aid.
