Welcome to our Benefice

Welcome to our benefice, combining the churches of All Saints (Great Oakley), All Saints (Wrabness), St Mary the Virgin (Wix), St Edmund King & Martyr (Tendring) and St Leonard & St Mary (Beaumont-cum-Moze). We hope our new website will help us to help you through these difficult times. We welcome any suggestions for inclusions on the site.

Safeguarding: “We are committed to Safeguarding children and young people and vulnerable adults. All PCC’s within this Benefice have adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding. Full details may be found on our Safeguarding page of this website.”

Worship in church

The government has announced that services can resume in our churches once again for worship. Please refer to our notices about Covid-19 Precautions notice and NHS Track and Trace.

See our Services page for Church Service dates.

Churches Open for Supervised Private Prayer

Each of our churches will be open for private prayer once a week. Because we are encouraged to remain shut for 72 hours after a church has been open, the days each week may have to change to allow for Sunday worship, funerals and weddings. Each month we will publish details, and add any necessary change as and when, so please check back here often.

See our Supervised Prayer page for Church opening times.
