Welcome to St. Mary's Great Dunmow


Welcome to St. Mary's Church, Great Dunmow

Our Sunday services are currently 'hybrid' services - people will be in church and we will also be streaming the services, so if you feel more comfortable staying at home at the moment, please join us on Zoom.

ST. MARY'S OPEN FOR PRIVATE PRAYER. From Monday 7th June, St Mary's Church will be open between 9am-4pm, providing we have volunteers available to sanitise each day. If you would like to join this rota and help sanitise for 20 minutes once a week please contact Rev Tom - we particularly need help on Fridays. Please do let others in the community know that the church is regularly open once again.

Thursday Services

You are warmly welcome to join us at St Mary's or continue to join in via Zoom. We are committed to offering both options during the continued uncertain times.

Dates for your diary: Vicarage Afternoon Teas

From Rev Tom and Allula

We hope to host an 'open house Afternoon Tea' in the Vicarage garden on Sunday 13th June and again on Sunday 27th June. This will be for everyone but will be dependent on the weather and we could have to limit numbers to comply with Government guidelines. More details will be issued when guidelines have become clearer. Let's hope the summer gives us more opportunities to come together for fellowship.

St. Mary's A/V project

As most will know, we are raising money to install new technology into the church, and you will find more information about this here.

Anything to do with technology seems to be expensive (!), so we are very grateful to those who have donated towards the cost of the project so far.

If you would like to help, please see the details on the A/V project page.

If you'd like to view or listen to our services, please have a look here.
