Who We Are…
St Nicholas’ and St Stephen’s are local Anglican churches with a local vision to worship God and love and serve the people of Ingrave and Herongate.
We also carry responsibilities with The Churches Conservation Trust for All Saints East Horndon. A beautiful, redundant Tudor church on the south end of our parish by the A127.
Our worship style attempts to be formal enough to honour God with space and awe for His presence and informal enough to be welcoming and accessible.
Our services are mainly sacramental with Holy Communion as the central act of worship and a combination or organ, keyboard and broadcast music.
We passionately teach the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church and look to the whole of God’s church to interpretthe modernising calls upon the church in the 21st century.
We welcome children into our services and provide parentally managed crèche space for pre school aged children.
Our usual worship pattern is
St Nicholas’, 9:30am - 10:30am
St Stephen’s, 11am-12noon
St Nicholas, 10am - 10:30am
St Stephen’s, 11am - 11:30am
Prayers are also said in both churches each day. Please get in touch if you want us to pray for you.

Equips - God’s people to prayerful disciples of Jesus, following him daily and being his witnesses.
