…to the church that faith built

St Margaret’s Berechurch, based in Colchester, is a dynamic Anglican church with a passion for community, worship and teaching. We are a family-friendly group of people, meeting in a modern church building, catering for people of all walks of life. There are a number of weekly events you’d be welcome to come to, and our Sunday services are well attended and offer something for everyone.

We have a diverse ministry team (see ‘contacts’ for our details) made up of ordained ministers and laypeople. We offer a range of activities and a warm welcome to everyone. We regularly run Alpha courses and our Tea and Company meetings cater especially for those recently bereaved. Please use the tabs to discover more!

Do take a look around our site, take a virtual tour of the church building, and get in touch if you have any questions!
