St Martin's Chipping Ongar

We should like to extend a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at St Martin's.
We hope you will find all the information you need about us on these pages, whether you are thinking of visiting us, or are already a member of our church community. 

An important element in our reaching out to our local community is making the church building available each day for those who wish to visit for whatever reason. St Martin's is normally open Sunday to Friday from 9.30am to 5pm (dusk if earlier) and on Saturdays from 9.30am to 12noon.

Services are held on every Sunday and Wednesday. Children are  very welcome and especially to our Family orientated services on the first and third Sundays at 10.30am.
