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

We're hiring!

St Albright’s is excited about recruiting a Children and Families Pioneer to work alongside their Pioneering Team, primarily in the New Housing Developments in Stanway. We’re praying for the right person. Could this be you? For more details go to: http://ow.ly/5A8O50zl2CE

 

 

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - Closure of St Albright’s Church

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 9.00am to 5.00pm.

Rooted in prayer, in scripture and in the liturgical 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 on Sundays at 10.30am, but there there is also an earlier (9.00am) Prayer Book Holy Communion and a simple modern language Communion 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?
