Stewards of the Gospel update

The North Essex Parish Partnership (the parishes of the North Essex Deanery) publish A Draft Proposal for Abridged Restructuring a draft which forms part of the recommendations of how our parish and deanery should be moving forward.This will be sent to Bishop Alan and his team along with our recommendations to restructure the parish and diocese. Paper copies are available at the back of church.

Like other churches in Saffron Walden, the Catholic church has a lively and numerous congregation, drawing its parishioners from a geographically large parish, stretching from Steeple Bumpstead to Chrishall, from Great Chesterford to Newport and forming part of the North Essex Deanery of the Diocese of Brentwood.
