Praying for you


If you would like to pray for someone or for a situation, these will be included in the prayers we offer so please email or text Revd Helen on 07866 451744.
We are happy to speak to you on the telephone if you need support too.

Beating the Bounds of Nazeing - May 17-20 2020

Revd Helen walked the 22.6km boundary of Nazeing over three days in May to pray for the parish and raise urgently needed funds for the parish. This was the traditional 'Beating the Bounds' parish walk which takes place in Rogation Tide in May. We hope to repeat it next year as a community event.

Churches, alongside many other charities and businesses, have been badly impacted by Coronavirus. We are seeking to raise £5,000 to keep going this year. Please donate via Paypal here:

10% of what we raise will go to support communities in Marsabit, the northern region of Kenya, where drought and locusts are affecting communities as well as Coronavirus. Thank you for helping us and them.

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.
