Welcome to St Peter’s Church
Our Parish church is a beautiful Grade II* listed building that dates back to the 13th century. It lies in the heart of rural Essex overlooking the River Blackwater estuary. It provides a special place for community worship and a tranquil haven of peace in our busy world. We are part of the Blackwater Benefice and are currently in a period of vacancy as we look for a new Priest-in-Charge.
Our clergy are Revd Andrew Vince (Lead Associate Minister), Revd Sue Godsmark (Associate Priest) and Revd Sarah Clare (Associate Priest)
Please contact Lizzie Armour, our Benefice Administrator, for all general enquiries:

On Sunday 28th April St Peter’s Church will be holding the Annual Meeting at which time we look at life of the Church and look forward to the next year by electing Churchwarden(s) as the current holders have to step down at this meeting. The Churchwarden role is supported by the Parochial Church Council which meets around 6 times per year. The Congregation is looking for people who attend the Church to put themselves forward for nomination to the role of Churchwarden as well as to be a member of the PCC. However, we are also looking for any people willing to assist with the roles of Secretary, Treasurer and keeping the Church building and surrounds in good order. Any assistance would be gratefully received – there is no need for volunteers in these roles to be attendees at St Peter’s. If you feel that you would like to be involved with helping keep our beautiful Church and Churchyard viable then please contact Karen Tarpey ([email protected]), who will be happy to explain what is involved.

God of mission, Who alone brings growth to your Church, Send your Holy Spirit to give Vision to our planning, Wisdom to our actions, and Power to our witness. Help our church to grow in numbers, In spiritual commitment to you and in service to our community, Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
