St Thomas Church Bradwell-on-Sea


The parishes of St Nicholas Tillingham, St James Dengie and St Lawrence joined St Thomas’ at Bradwell-on-Sea on Sunday 29th January for a Candlemas service conducted by Revd Lionel Webber. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to worship together and loved the service which had over 50 in attendance. Well done to Wyn and Sheila for providing the coffee and cakes.


Both Joint Benefices of Bradwell and St Lawrence and Tillingham and Dengie have opted to join as one benefice with a full time priest rather than two benefices each with a part time House for duty priest.

Having started an exciting journey in a new joint benefice we are looking or a new Priest (Priest-in-charge) to help us to continue to take our churches forward in the encouragement of baptisms, confirmations and welcoming new members.

Within the benefice we have the ancient chapel of St Peter ad Murum. The Chapel has its own ordained Chaplain who is a member of the ministry team.
