About Us

Tollesbury is the largest parish in the current North Blackwater Benefice with a mixed population of families and very active retired people. Tollesbury nestles on the north shore of the river Blackwater estuary. It is a self –sufficient community supporting several local shops. This village is a special place with a big heart.

Our church lies in the square at the heart of the village. It is a well maintained Grade II* listed building dating from the 11th Century and is open daily. We have services every Sunday as well as groups and activities during the week (Edward Bear Club, Prayer Group, Mothers Union Group).

Sunday services are at 9.30am on the first, second and fourth weeks, the first and third Sundays being Family Communion services with a Sunday Club, the first Sunday being an All Age Worship Service and 8.00am Communion on the first and third weeks. On the third Sunday we combine with Tollesbury Congregational Church (just across the road in East Street) to hold Messy Church. Breakfast is served from 9.00am with the service and activities starting at 9.30am.

We are committed to Safeguarding children and young people 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, or on the Safeguarding pages of the Chelmsford Diocese: https://www.chelmsford.anglican.org/safeguarding
