Please contact the Vicar for Baptisms, Marriages and when you are in need of help. He is happy to bring Communion to the homes of the sick and housebound.

The church has an active bell ringing community who meet twice-weekly.  


We host high quality Chamber Concerts, providing a platform for some of the best young classical musicians to play in our community. These are non-profit making and as well as making use of our historic building and allowing us to enjoy an almost spiritual connection with the highest calibre of music, they encourage the careers of young professional musicians. These are typically run in the first quarter, full details can be found at http://www.wethersfieldchamberconcerts.org.uk
