Notice board.

Covid news.

8th March 2022

Our current services can be viewed on our services page, and we have removed all social distancing restrictions from our church buildings. We are asking people to consider wearing masks, especially when moving around or singing, and we are providing hand-sanitiser at the entrances too. We continue to offer communion in one kind only at the present time.

His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh.

9th April 2021

We are saddened to hear today of the death of Prince Philip, and extend our condolences to the Queen and all the Royal Family at this very difficult time.

Our latest risk assessments are available to download.

24th March 2021

The risk assessments for reopening our buildings for public worship are now available, ready for our services on Easter Sunday and following. You can download these as Microsoft Word documents. Bradfield's risk assessment is available here, and Mistley's can be downloaded here.

Our buildings will reopen for public worship on Easter Day.

13th March 2021

On Easter Day, there will be communion services at Bradfield at 9:30am, and at Mistley at 4pm. On the following Sundays, we will have in-person services at 9:30am each week, alternating between the buildings (starting with Mistley on 11th April). We will continue to meet each Sunday on YouTube at 11am, too.

We are considering when to reopen our buildings.

9th March 2021

We are currently in conversation about when and how we will reopen our church buildings. It is important to be able to gather together physically, but due to the restrictions we face, and the responsibility we share to limit the spread of the virus, these decisions cannot be taken lightly. Further updates will appear on this website and our Facebook page in due course.

Tendring is now in Tier 4.

24th December 2020

Following the recent announcement that our area is now in Tier 4, and having seen the number of cases of the Covid-19 virus significantly rise in recent days, we have taken the decision to suspend all in person worship / prayer meetings in our buildings until further notice. We will, of course, continue to meet online via Youtube.

Re-opening of church buildings

UPDATE: 22nd June 2020

The Government has recently made the decision to allow church buildings to open for the purposes of private prayer and small funerals. At present our two church buildings remain closed, but we have issued an update on our plans. You can read the statement here, or watch a video of it being read on our YouTube channel, here.

Bradfield Churchyard

16th June 2020

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have been unable to tend to the churchyard at Bradfield as we would normally do over the last few months. However, we are hoping that the overgrown areas will soon be able to be tackled, and are in discussions about how best to facilitate this. We will let you know what the plans are as soon as we've sorted them out.
