This is a really beautiful little church hidden away in the forest. Although it is small there are a plethora of services available and it is busy. In summer teas are served with home made cakes.

I got married here and both my children were christened here. It is a very special place with wonderful energy. If ever you are local to Epping Forest you should visit. They have the best Christingle service on Christmas Eve too.
