A notice from the Vicar, Associate Minister and Church Wardens about our Sunday services.


Following strong advice from the Archbishops we regret to inform you that all our church services will be suspended until further notice. This is in the interest of public health and a desire on the part of the church family across Henham, Elsenham and Ugley, to do our part to help curtail the spread of Coronavirus. We do apologise to anyone who is upset by this decision.


Please be assured that the church family is praying for our communities at this time and members are busying themselves as far as is permissible to assist in the care of those most vulnerable.


Please watch this space for further developments.

During this time of social distancing, when we are unable to meet together to encourage one another and build up one another in our faith (1 Thes. 5:11), we are blessed with the means to go online and be blessed and encouraged by others.

We proclaim Jesus Christ, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.       Colossians 1:28.


As disciples of the only Saviour, Jesus Christ, our vision is to make the Christian Faith clear and accessible to all by nurturing people within the fellowship of The Faith, giving them such teaching and pastoral support as they will need to live daily for Christ and promote His Gospel, thereby drawing others to Him within the fellowship of the Church.


Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.        Colossians 3:17

We are three friendly and welcoming Conservative Evangelical Anglican churches, made up of four congregations, committed to hearing God speak through the Bible and prayer. We are part of the Saffron Walden Mission and Ministry Unit in the Diocese of Chelmsford and are situated near Stansted Airport, Essex on the North Essex / Hertfordshire border.

We welcome everyone at our services whether they are already believers or just want to investigate who Jesus really is.

If you wish to know more please do contact us or join us at one of our services.

What We Believe

We believe in God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, whose written word is the Bible. We believe in Jesus, the Word made flesh, who has saved us by his death and rules as Lord. The gospel message calls us to repentance and obedience. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who comes to us through faith in the message of the gospel that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and who sustains us in our obedience and growth in Christ.

We are committed to safeguarding children and young people and adults at risk. The PCCs of Henham, Elsenham and Ugley have adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website: or on the Safeguarding pages of the Chelmsford Diocese:  https//


A Parish Safeguarding Representative has been appointed by the PCC’s for Henham, Elsenham and Ugley and can be contacted at

Details of our Parish Safeguarding Representative can be found on the noticeboards in all three of our churches and on the church noticeboard of the Elsenham Village Hall congregation.
