St. Albright’s Church

Stanway, Essex

Seeking to be the transforming presence of God's love in Stanway.’

St Albright’s is the Church of England Parish Church for Stanway, Essex, in the Diocese of Chelmsford. St Albright’s is at the heart of the community of Stanway today as it has been for at least 800 years.

The Church is open for prayer daily from 9am to 5:00pm.

Rooted in prayer, in scripture and in the catholic tradition of the Church of England, we are called in faith by our Lord Jesus Christ to proclaim his gospel message in word and sacrament and through dignified liturgy and music. We aim to nurture and support each other in our faith and to offer pastoral help to those in need. We aim to make our church a place of welcome to all and a space for prayer and reflection.

We place great importance on Eucharist-centred worship and on teaching the faith of the church as it has been handed on from each generation to the next.

In many ways we are a typical Church of England parish. Our main weekly service is a Sung Parish Eucharist at 10.30am there is also a 9:00am said Holy Communion with traditional language each Sunday and a simple Eucharist on every Wednesday at 9:30am.

We try to be a place of quiet and welcome and to make our services welcoming, straightforward and reflective.

Visitors tell us that we are welcoming to newcomers and visitors alike so why not visit us one Sunday soon .
