REMEMBERING THOSE WE HAVE LOVED
There will be a special quiet, reflective Benefice service at 6p.m. on Sunday 7th November at St Mary's Theydon Bois to remember in God’s presence a loved one who has died. It will comprise hymns, Bible readings, and an opportunity to light a candle as an act of prayer. The service takes place annually in the Benefice on the first Sunday in November after All Souls Day, when the church on earth remembers all those who have gone before us.
A warm welcome is extended to all visitors, both to this website, and visitors of our four churches.
The Benefice is the coming together of a number of churches (All Saints Theydon Garnon, St Mary the Virgin Theydon Bois, and the joint parish of St Michael’s Theydon Mount and St Mary the Virgin Stapleford Tawney)
We are three active parishes that provide the opportunity to deliver a range of styles of worship from the Book of Common Prayer to All Age Worship. Our congregations are committed to developing their churches and reaching out to their communities in mission and ministry. We face different challenges in our quest to serve God in each community, whilst promoting the Christian faith.
