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.

From this Sunday, all pews at St Mary's and St Andrew's will be open again and you will be able to sit wherever you wish. Socially distanced chairs will remain at the back of St Mary's for those who wish to have a little more space. There are some in our congregations that are not able to be vaccinated and so for everyone's safety, and in line with Government and scientific advice, we will still be encouraging people to wear masks while moving about in church. However, this is a personal choice, and you may feel comfortable removing them for the service, once you have taken your seat. If you have any questions on this please contact Rev Tom or the Church Wardens.


You are very welcome to join our services 'in-person' on Thursdays (9:30) and Sundays (10:30); however, if you are not able to come to St. Mary's, you can always join us on Zoom - just click this link and you will be taken into the meeting.

Not able to join us at the time? Not a problem - our Sunday services are recorded and available to watch whenever you want. You will find them listed here.

If you have any problems, please contact Patrick (patrick@smgd.org.uk / 07759-317951).

ST. MARY'S OPEN FOR PRIVATE PRAYER. St Mary's Church is open between 9am-4pm. Please do let others in the community know that the church is regularly open once again.

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.
