News and Events

Updated 28 June 2020

In line with guidance from the Government, the Church of England and the Chelmsford Diocese we are aiming to open the Church for a 10am Sunday Eucharist from Sunday the 5th of July. There will obviously have to be social distancing and sanitising processes in place, and movement round the Church will be limited. In addition, there will be no singing and all service material will be single use and have to be disposed of at the end of the service, so there will be no hymn or service books in use. We are also aiming to continue to Zoom the service for those who are still isolating.

In addition, the Church will be open for supervised Private Prayer from 10am to noon every Wednesday, starting from the 8th of July. Again, the necessary measures will be in place to ensure those attending are kept safe and well.

We look forward to welcoming the people of Burnham and the wider Dengie back to St Mary’s.
