Welcome to St. Mary's Church - Woodham FerrersSt. Mary's is the Church of England church for Woodham Ferrers , a village near Chelmsford in Essex, UK and it has stood at the heart of our community for over 750 years. It is the parish church for the Woodham Ferrers and Bicknacre parish, with Bicknacre being served by St. Andrews.
St. Mary's is situated at the top of the hill in Woodham Ferrers. However, being set back from the road, people often miss it and don't realise this wonderfully historic building is there. Those who take the time to visit will find an interesting and beautiful church, in a peaceful setting, and from the graveyard there are panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
We have close ties with St. Mary's school , the congregational Church in the village and our sister church St. Andrew's in Bicknacre. We hold many events throughout the year, such as the parish fete, the flower festival and concerts, as well as the special Easter, Harvest, Rememberance and Christmas services.
Like the church itself, our services are tradtional and are rooted in the belief that Jesus is the son of God, who died to enable us to be forgiven for the things we do wrong. This means that we can now have a relationship with God through the Holy Spirit. As a statement of what we believe, we say the Creed at our services. If you want to find out more about the Christian faith, please do come along and visit us, or get in touch.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”
From 1 John 3, vs 1.
Our services are on Sunday morning at 11:15 AM. We look forward to welcoming you!
