We are a middle of the road Church of England with a diverse range of services and a great musical tradition.
The church is located in the old part of Wivenhoe. Find us on this location map.
Whether you are a Wivenhoe resident who does not generally attend church, or a visitor to the town, we would love to welcome you at our services.

Decorating your Christmas tree is a matter of finding the right balance. Minimal decoration makes the tree look miserable, while overloading it with too many ornaments turns it into kitsch. Likewise the way we celebrate Christmas. If we do not make an effort to make Christmas one of the highlights of the year, we turn the feast into something depressing that lacks the joy of His birth. On the other hand, if we overload the feast with unnecessary junk and futilities we cover up the message of Godís love and our celebration becomes superficial. The only way to enjoy Christmas in full is by starting from the real message that in Jesus Christ God shows us His love. Celebrating this good news fills our life with purpose, peace, forgiveness and joy. And such a fulfilled life is my wish for you this Christmas.
