All Saints' Church is in the village of Epping Upland, to the north west of Epping. It is situated on a ridge overlooking fields and countryside. Although found in a rural area, All Saints' Epping Upland is a thriving church, with a weekly service at 11:10am every Sunday with Holy Communion on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month. It also has strong links to the nearby church primary school.
There is a popular monthly all-age lay-led family service on the 4th Sunday of the month, preceded by 10am Sunday School which leads into the service. The church hosts carol and other school services for Epping Upland Primary School throughout the year.
The lovely regular congregation work hard to maintain their much loved church. It is an older church with part of the present nave dating to the 13th century and a 13th century tower, found in a very rural location with views across fields in every direction. The church stands in traditional churchyard with a rural back drop. It has its own spacious car park and is accessible from the M11 and M25.
The church is open in summer on Sunday afternoons when teas are served, starting in June. Some of the tables are placed outside to allow enjoyment of the fantastic views. There are always wonderful homemade jams and cakes on sale.
This active church organises a range of events over the year, including a summer concert, a Pet Service and other opportunities to listen to music, which ranges from organ concerts, handbells and harp music.
All Saints Church is part of the Epping District Team and takes its turn in hosting the regular team events and services.
All Saints' Church churchyard is closed to burials, although the neighbouring graveyard, administered by the Parish Council, is still open. All but the most recent existent registers of baptisms and marriages and all those for burials are held at the Essex Records Office in Chelmsford.
