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

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 parents and toddlers 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.

For details of church services please see the weekly Notices sheet, our quarterly Magazine and our Special Services & Events page.

Most weeks we follow the lectionary Bible readings found here.

We adhere to the Safeguarding Policy for the Church of England.

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. For more details please see Hiring. For enquiries about Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals please contact one of the ministry team below.

If you would like to read more about the origins of the church, see our History page.

We serve the parish of Great Notley and enjoy close links with the Churches of St. Peter & St. Paul in Black Notley, All Saints in Rayne and Christ Church in Braintree.
