All Saints with St James’ Church, Brightlingsea
Jesus is risen! He is risen indeed, Halleluiah!
July 2021 The PCC and Vicar have decided that the pattern for in-person church services will return to the pattern as it was before the pandemic:-
Or you can go to the ‘Services’ page of this website
Funerals will all be at All Saints’ with numbers restricted by H M Govt to 30 for funerals. Weddings: Please contact Linda Salmon on 01206 30 6563 for information.
Interment of Ashes: We have resumed interment of ashes in order to ‘catch up’ with requests and give families closure, while recognising that some families will wish to wait and have a fuller memorial service with ash interment once restrictions have eased because only a small funeral was permitted at the time.
Baptisms are allowed with just parents, or you may want to wait until you can be in church with a higher number of guests.
