Church of England Diocese of Chelmsford North Ockendon

North Ockendon: St Mary Magdalene

You are invited and welcomed to join us in our Christian fellowship. We are a small friendly congregation who welcome all, whether you are a regular church person or an occasional visitor.

The condition of the Church and grounds is a wonderful tribute to the people who, throughout the ages, have devoted much time and energy in caring for this lovely place of worship.

The present parish members, who come from both the village and the surrounding area, form an active Christian community, making this Church and it's grounds a beautiful spiritual home for many.


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: https://www.churchofengland.org/more/safeguarding

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Linda Coe, who may be contacted at church or on 01708 341346.
