Coronavirus Update

As we are now under a national lockdown, and following direction from the Bishop's Council, all Sunday services will be held online until such time that we are allowed to resume meeting for worship.  Details of our services appear under the Upcoming Events section on this page.  The Orchards Cafe is now closed and will only reopen once permitted to do so.

 

Meadgate Church is a thriving, friendly church in the middle of the community of Meadgate in Great Baddow. Everyone is welcome to join us whether you've been going to church for years, haven't been for a while, or are just interested in finding out more. On a Sunday we have three services that cater for all tastes, but Meadgate Church doesn't end on Sunday - you can normally find something going on everyday of the week and you'll find details of all that we do on this website. We hope you'll drop by and find a non-threatening, warm and welcoming atmosphere.  We're just a bunch of people trying to follow the example Jesus set for us - hence our mission statement is "Aiming to be like Jesus."
