We are an inclusive church

What does that mean? As a parish we aspire to welcome with love all people, and not to discriminate on any level. We have chosen to become part of the Inclusive Church network, and have agreed to support the principles of Inclusive Church (see statement below).

We also support the provisions of the Equalities Act 2010, which seeks to achieve equal opportunities in the workplace and wider society, and as part of our commitment to this, we are striving to make our churches more accessible to all. Inclusive Church is a group of Christians uniting together around our statement of belief:

"We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ."

Come and Ring our Bell!

As part of the national efforts to recruit 1,400 new bellringers across the UK to commemorate the WW1 centenary, we are launching our own recruitment campaign. Our aim is to recruit 6 new learners to help prepare for a special national bellringing event to mark the end of WW1 on 11 November 2018. 

Bellringing is great fun and a bit of a challenge - not just physically, but mentally (a bit like sudoku with bells!). We are inviting new ringers to come and join us. We are launching Thursday evening practices once a month this summer, For more information contact Marcus Sams, Deputy Tower Captain, on 07840 965387.

And if you have ever wondered, here's how bellringing works (with thanks to Washington Ringing Society for the brilliant animations.)

Churchyard works are underway. Visitors will notice a new ditch has been created and this has already started to drain some of the waterloggingin the churchyard. We will be replanting trees and hedges shortly. We expect this work to continue. Epping Forest District Council

EFDC and NPC support our churchyard

We are pleased to say that Nazeing Churchyard has secured a grant from EFDC to support the churchyard in 2017-18.

We are also grateful to Nazeing Parish Council which has made a grant to support the churchyard in 2018. 

Thank you. If it were not for these funds we could not keep this churchyard open.

Welcome to the parish of Nazeing

Nazeing is one of the largest parishes in Essex. 

Our Christian community on this headland dates back over a thousand years when, in the 7th Century, the followers of St Cedd brought the gospel to Essex.The parish has two churches:

All Saints, a beautiful Grade 1 listed church, which dates back to the 11th century. 

St Giles, at the crossroads in Nazeing village, was built in 1964 and has been a much-loved community church and hall for over 50 years.

We use both churches for different styles of worship - see Our Services for more details.
