About Us

St Edmund’s Church serves a parish covering South Chingford. The Church building (designed by the influential architect N.F. Cachemaille-Day) is located in Larkswood Road by the Chingford Mount shopping centre.

We are part of the Church of England – the nation’s church. All are welcome irrespective of background and belief.

We seek to be a welcoming and inclusive church ... 

where human diversity is affirmed and celebrated unafraid to speak out against those who would exclude people from the life of the community or the love of God providing opportunities for services, activities and events that bring people together open to working collaboratively with people of all faiths and of none maintaining our buildings to provide space for the community to explore its spirituality and a place to celebrate together.

We are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People, Victims/perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Adults. The PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website.

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Debbie Watson, who may be contacted at church or by email.
