Updated 1 September 2021

Following a review of the current Government and Chelmsford Diocese guidance St Mary’s Church has removed most of the mandatory Covid-19 restrictions from within the Church, although a section of the Church remains enclosed for those wishing or needing to social distance.  The Church is open for Sunday worship at 10am and is open to the public from 9am to 5pm every day for Private Prayer.
