'St Peter's, A Unique Forest Church'

To save the life of our church building we are receiving a magnificent contribution from the National Lottery Heritage FundThe Lottery grant of £1.37 million will help us reconfigure and rededicate the church building so that it can continue to serve the whole community in this parish, as it has since 1840. We have also received donations from London Over the Border, Allchurches Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Beatrice Laing Trust, and Friends of Essex Churches Trust.


There is still a shortfall of £155,000

to meet our total project costs!


Please give generously so that we can support the survival of our Grade II listed church and continue to reach out with our ministry and community projects.
