Welcome to the Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul
St Osyth Church, Church Square, St Osyth, Clacton on Sea, Essex, Co16 8NU Charity No. X96628 (St Osyth PCC)
Hello and welcome to our website. This front page will give you direct links to other pages with current news so please scroll down!
Good News!!!! With the change in Government restrictions we are pleased to announce that there will be a Communion Service each week commencing on Thursday 3rd December at 10am. It also means that we can resume our Sunday Services of Holy Communion at 11am starting on Sunday 6th December!!
I am very much looking forward to seeing you back in Church – don’t forget your face coverings. As usual, 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.
See you soon.
The church will remain open daily for private prayer & for the receipt of Food Bank donations but please note that the Church will be closed on Tuesday, 1st December and Friday, 4th December to enable the floor to be cleaned and polished.
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 even during pandemics!!
