Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.
Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.

Welcome to the Church of St Thomas Bradwell-on-Sea a happy friendly church offering a warm welcome to all.
We normally have services every Sunday, 10-30 communion on the first and third Sundays, 10-30 All Age services on the second Sundays, 8-00 Holy Communion and 10-30 Family Services with songs for the children on forth on the forth Sunday. On the first Sunday we also had an afternoon service at the Down Hall Care Home at 15-30. On the fifth Sunday we had a joint service with St Lawrence Church, St Nicholas Tillingham or St James' at Dengie.
The parish is proud to support our Church school that has very close links to our church community. The school regularly used the church facilities for services and meetings.
We have an active and enthusiastic team of Bell ringers who practiced each Friday at 8pm, and rung for all Sunday services, and a choir that met on Friday evenings at 18:30pm, after we get back to normal all are welcome to come along.
There is a Thursday Group which is a social group open to all in the parish who wish to meet and chat or have meals together. The group either met in the church or went out for a meal on the first Thursday in the month.
We have an excellent group of flower arrangers who will continue to arrange flowers in the church each week and at all the church festivals. We also have beautiful Flower Festivals on special occasions.
St Thomas Church also support and maintain St Peters Chapel where we had a Communion Service each Thursday at 9am (except for December and January), Sunday Evening Services in July and August at 6:30pm and special services throughout the year.
