St Mary’s in Lawford is a friendly family church that is part of the Church of England in the diocese of Chelmsford. Although we gather together to meet every Sunday for worship, it’s not just about Sunday’s! Small Groups, that lie at the heart of who are we, meet at other times during the week. Children have groups on Sundays and are welcome along with all the family at Messy Church.

As a group of Christians, we follow Jesus Christ – an explanation of what we believe is available here. Although we meet in an ancient building, our outlook is entirely focused on living as Christians in a contemporary age. We are excited by all that God wants to do in  Lawford, and as our vision statement says we are ‘seeking God’s transforming power in ourselves, our church, and our community’. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Bible verse of the day

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

Random bible verse

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
