Welcome to
the Church of England in Chingford ~
two churches united in faithful prayer, worship & service

A welcome from the Parish

Please visit our News page for information on our Parish life, and to the Contact page for details of our Ministry TeamĀ 

Welcome to the Church of England in Chingford. We are two churches, seeking to be faithful in prayer, constant in our worship of God and devoted in our service to our community.

We seek to be a welcoming community that worships in the modern catholic tradition in our two historic churches. SS Peter and Paul, the parish church, has a unique choral tradition, taking from the best of traditional and contemporary music. We host many community events in our halls, we are serious about understanding more about our faith, and we offer activities for children in a safe and supportive environment.

We have a strong pastoral ministry for those who want to be baptised, who seek God’s blessing on their marriage, or who, in grief, come to mark the ending of a loved one’s life.

As Scripture encourages us: “We come before God’s throne, to share in the inheritance of the saints.”

And you are most welcome to join us.

Good Administration Leads to Good (Ad)Ministry Are you a skilled and conscientious administrator? Do you like enabling fellowship, community-building, and deepening ties between people in Chingford? Are you confident in talking to strangers, and wrestling with Word? Are you happy with paperwork, and enthused by people? If so, come and work for the Parish of Chingford as our Parish Administrator. We are looking for someone to replace our present Parish Administrator, who after three very productive years, is returning to her first vocation, teaching. If you are interested, please read the job description, and speak to the Rector or the current Parish Administrator. We are taking applications until Monday 11 July, and would like someone to start as soon as possible, to “shadow” the present administrator over the quiet days of summer. Come and help us flourish!
