In response to the latest Lockdown and the new variant Church Services are suspended.  Suggestions for on-line worship are on the 'Church at Home' page


Welcome to the website for the Churches of Great Waltham, Ford End and The Chignals with Mashbury.

Our Ministry team works with the 3 Churches at Great and Little Leighs and Little Waltham. Services and events are held in all 6 of the Churches; services vary in style and form across the Churches and we try to offer something for everyone, so you can worship in the way that suits you.  Please explore these pages and contact us if you need us in any way or come and worship with us at one of our services or events.

Our parishes are currently in vacancy after Revd Caroline Brown moved to Springfield, the process of appointing a new Priest in Charge for our group of six parishes is affected by the financial strain placed on the Church by the impact of the pandemic.  Please read the attached from Roger Bearman Chair of the PCC.

In the meantime Revd Sandra together with Revd Neil and our friendly congregations offer a warm welcome to all comers - socially distanced of course for the timebeing.  Our on line service continues for those at home at 10.30 on Sundays on Sandra's Facebook page.
