Church of England Diocese of Chelmsford Widford

About Us

We are an evangelical congregation with worship being led by a worship band currently online 10.00am service.  Church of the Holy Spirit is settled within the Beechenlea and Westlands housing estates in Widford, just before the parade of shops.

We are active within our community, hosting Westlands School Assemblies, weekly Lunch Club (£2.50 for a two course hot meal), after-school clubs, primary school children's parties, holiday clubs, house groups as well as many socials such as quiz nights.

The Parish Centre joins Church of the Holy Spirit and this building is the one that is used for our groups, as well as being available for hire for children's parties, the elections and other groups.


All services can be found on our Widford Parish Facebook page, starting at 10.00 each Sunday. The livestream will run through November. 


The 5th Sunday of the month (when there is one) is held with the South West Chelmsford Churches as a United Service.
