St Mary's Church 

West Bergholt

A warm welcome to St Mary's, West Bergholt.

St Mary's is a small but lively Church of England community in the Essex village of West Bergholt. We seek to share the heart of God with the heart of the community, through joining with people in their spiritual journey. We do this through accessible worship, opportunities to learn together and to serve in God's strength and with His guidance. 

The church is open each weekday for Private Prayer from 10am to 3pm
