Welcome to the Parishes of Abberton and Langenhoe, St Andrew’s Abberton is fine Church in a lovely setting overlooking the Abberton Reservoir. St Mary’s Langenhoe which had been damaged in the Essex earthquake of 1884, was closed to worship in 1955 and demolished in 1963 after it was deemed structurally unsafe.

Now part of the Donyland Parishes comprising of St Andrew Fingringhoe with St Lawrence East Donyland or Rowhedge and St Andrew Abberton with Langenhoe in the Church of England Diocese of Chelmsford

Set overlooking the Abberton Reservoir we welcome people of all ages, all church backgrounds or none, and especially those thinking about the Christian faith for the first time for prayer and quiet reflection and good liturgy.

Church Services are held every week please check on Pages and links - Church Services

Prayer for healing and Healing service is held 2nd Wednesday of every month at St Lawrence church Rowhedge following our 10am weekly Eucharist which is very much part of our tradition.
