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 a service at a local crematorium. Your funeral director will be happy to make the arrangements.
Alternatively you can contact our Team Office. A member of the team will be happy to come to you to discuss different options.
We are still there for you after the service, please do get in contact if you need some bereavement support or advice about memorial services or burial of ashes.
This website can also help with finding the right support for you:
You will also be invited to our annual bereavement service.
So you are thinking about Baptism for yourself or a loved one? Great!
Baptism (also known as Christening) is a joyful occasion during which we give thanks to God for the gift of the candidate and ask for blessing upon them. It is also the time when we officially welcome people into the Church body and open their hearts to enjoy a relationship with God.
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.
