St Mary’s is an ancient and beautiful place of worship at the heart of the Essex market town of Saffron Walden. One of the the largest parish churches in Essex, the building dates mainly from the fifteenth century. With its great arches in the nave and high clerestory windows, it truly is an amazing space.

We come from many different ages and walks of life. Some of us have been Christians for years while others have only discovered faith recently. We worship and learn and spend time together because the journey of life and Christian faith is too hard to make alone. We are drawn together by God’s love for us and aim to share that love with others around us.
St Mary’s is also part of a wider team of twelve churches in the area.
