I got married here and both my children were christened here. It is a very special place with wonderful energy. If ever you are local to Epping Forest you should visit. They have the best Christingle service on Christmas Eve too.

Take a trip to High Beech on a Sunday afternoon, for tea and fab cakes at a very reasonable price and all proceeds go to the church

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

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
