All welcome, all the time.

 Since November 2019, we have been in rebuild mode. We were blessed to receive a large grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund of money raised from National Lottery players right across the country. This will help renovate and reorder our church building as part of our major five-year activity plan. When the dust settles we are not going to slow down: our church will become a busy centre for community arts, community gardening, community cooking, and community history. Whoever you are and whatever your story is, you will find a place with us in our corner of Epping Forest.


To find out more about our work, please visit us on social media, send us an email, give us a call, or subscribe to our newsletter. Head to our volunteer page to learn how you can join our active and social teams.
