Overview
More
The Church of the Holy Innocents was built in 1873, designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield in Victorian Gothic style and is situate in the heart of Epping Forest. It is open every Sunday afternoon between 2.00 and 5.00 pm from the beginning of May to the end of September for visitors to look around and enjoy home-made cake and light refreshments in its tranquil churchyard. Visitors are encouraged to ascend the church tower to learn how to ring the carillon or to sit inside the church and listen to the Father Willis organ being played. On the altar cloth in the left hand chapel you can see the cattle brand marks for the local area depicted on the altar cloth and the carpet leading up to the altar shows the two varient spellings of High Beach/Beech.

Popped in for a look at this beautiful church. Lovely grounds in which they serve afternoon tea in during summer months. People were friendly and local. I can't comment on the quality of the religious aspects, but it looked very family orientated

Friendly Church for visitors and regular worshippers. They serve afternoon tea on Sunday afternoon and have a talented group of flower arrangers. The doorway and Lychngate often decorated for weddings

Been attending the church regularly for many years, as well as services twice on Sundays, lots of events all through the year. And summer time brings the Sunday afternoon teas with delicious homemade cakes. Often to the accompianment of live music.

Walked to this lovely looking church which is well worth a trip and relaxed in the beautiful grounds for a while. We then walked on down to the Robin Hood pub for a drink.

Hi Jane, Weddings cost the same throughout the year and if a couple chooses to have all that we offer they cost just over £1,000. To be married in a church which is not your Parish church a couple must attend for at least... More
