As your parish church, St John's is here for you in all of life's big moments. We'd love to get to know you and your family.
If you would like to get married in any one of the churches of the Epping Team, please contact the Team Office either by e-mail or on 01992 575570 to book an appointment to discuss what you would like with one of the clergy team. There are regular Saturday morning appointments to plan weddings, but if this isn't convenient, please contact us to book another time.
When we meet together we'll be able to answer any questions you might have. As well as marriages we're always happy to discuss blessing services and renewal of vows.
It is our privilege to lead or to take a part in any funeral service, whether you choose a Church Funeral or if you would like a minister to lead a service at a local crematorium. Your funeral director will be happy to discuss options and make arrangements.
Alternatively you can contact our Team Office. A member of the clergy team will be happy to come to you to discuss different options.
So you are thinking about Baptism for yourself or a loved one? Great! Baptism is a joyful occasion during which we give thanks to God for his saving love; commit our lives to Christ; and ask for the blessing of the Holy Spirit. If you wish to be baptised or to have a child baptised, please contact us at the Team Office by e-mail or via 01992 575570 to arrange a time to meet for us to help you plan your baptism.
Confirmation is the step of commitment in which you affirm the promises made on your behalf at your baptism. We usually hold a confirmation service around November time and run a range of courses for people interested.
