Our parish churches serve the local communities of Fryerns, Craylands, Beechwood Village and Barstable East in the Essex town of Basildon.
We seek to love and worship God, to grow in prayer, flourish in our faith and to joyfully live out the good news of Jesus Christ at the heart of the local community. We see ourselves as a family, inclusive of all, and hope you find a warm welcome with us.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a new period of lockdown, and bearing in mind the high case levels in our area, we feel it is right for the moment to suspend public worship in our church buildings. Church is far from ‘closed’ though. We will continue to worship together through on-line services, and support each other and our community with God’s love in whatever way we can.
We will continue to stream Sunday and Wednesday Morning Communion services on FaceBook. The Sunday morning service will be available on YouTube. The service of Compline on a Thursday evening will also continue to be streamed, again on our FaceBook page.
We can continue to worship and pray as a church each one of us where-ever we are. There are some resources to help with this on our worship page.
Please note that the following activities are suspended until further notice
