Welcome to St Mary’s

GREAT BADDOW, CHELMSFORD

We are a church whose purpose is to glorify and worship God; to follow Jesus, and, through his Holy Spirit, grow to be like him; sharing his transforming love.
Come and join us, come and join in.

Children, Youth & Families

Our Children and Youth are not just the church of tomorrow, they are a vital part of the church of today. We aim to help all children, what ever age, develop in their spiritual lives and grow into a close relationship with the Lord. And we are passionate about connecting local families with the ministry, welcome and love of St Mary's.
