Welcome to the Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul
Hello and welcome to our website.
Join us for the Communion Service in our Church on Sunday 11th October at 10am.
There are a number of things we need to do to make it a safe experience for everyone attending. Click here for more details https://stosythparishchurch.co.uk/pew-sheets/
Our Church is also now OPEN for prayer most of the time. The DOORS WILL BE OPEN FROM 8AM – 4PM DAILY AS USUAL – apart from at the following time: HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE that the Church is shut after the Sunday service and reopened at lunchtime on Tuesday to avoid having to do a deep clean. We will be taking sensible precautions of course to prevent cross infection. There will be a table in front of the door with a sanitiser, disposable gloves and paper hand towels, all these to be used to keep you safe.
St Osyth Parish Church is a beautiful building which lies in the centre of the village. Whether you are a member of a congregation or a visitor, or just passing and drawn by spiritual need we hope you will find our Church a welcoming and uplifting place to be. You will not be visiting a museum but a lively centre of worship and music. It is a happy, special place and we hope you will join us both in worship and in the many activities that are organised here at St Peter and St Paul. You are very welcome at any of our services and we trust you will find peace, joy and friendship within our inclusive and enthusiastic Church family.
Our Church is both used and loved in equal proportion!
