The Church in Great Notley
To show the love of Jesus in word and action
so that others may come to know him as Lord and Saviour
A call to prayer for the nation
Following the call to prayer for the nation by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, we will be joining with the initiative through our evening prayers at 6.00pm on the Black Notley Facebook page each weekday. We invite you to share with this too, either by joining us at 6.00pm each weekday on Facebook, or by praying individually at 6.00pm for the nation. Prayer resources can be found here.
We are an ecumenical partnership church that's part of the Baptist Union, Church of England, Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church, in association with the Roman Catholic Church.
Our Sunday morning service starts at 11am and is for everyone. During term time we have a Junior Church group with fun teaching and activities for children of all ages.
1st Sunday - All Age Worship
This is a lively service and is suitable for all ages and often involves our young people.
2nd Sunday - Communion
This service is led by our resident or a visiting Free Church minister.
3rd Sunday - Communion and Evening Prayer and Praise
The morning service is a traditional Anglican Communion led by one of the ministry team. At 7pm we have a lively and informal service led by our worship band.
4th and 5th Sunday - Morning Praise
A livelier service, led by members of the congregation often with a visiting preacher.
There is a family room within the worship space with toys and a nursing chair. The service is relayed into this area so no one misses out on what is happening.
Most weeks we follow the lectionary Bible readings found here.
We are committed to Safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our Church Council has adopted the Church of England's poliices and best practice on safeguarding which may be foudn on the Church of England's website: https://www.churchofengland.org/more/safeguarding

We have wide range of groups and gatherings to help build community in the village. Drop into our weekly coffee shop on Tuesday or Friday mornings (in term time) or send us an email - we'd love to get to know you.
Each week there are a variety of activities for children & youth and we work with both primary schools in the village. The building is available to hire for meetings, events and parties.
