About Us

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. We strive to create places of Christian faith and worship in our beautiful building, which was built nearly 1000 years ago.

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.

Children are welcome to all of our services and especially to our Family orientated services on the first and third Sunday at 10.30am.

We are working closely with the other anglican churches in the Ongar Mission and Ministry Unit towards a collaborative ministry. With our brothers and sisters in the Roman Catholic and United Reformed Churches and other Anglican churches in the area, we form Churches Together in Ongar.
