Rev'd Tim Hardingham

As a church and as a team we are heartbroken at the news of Tim's death. He was a wonderful priest, teacher, father, friend and colleague.

Tim was a true gentleman or gentle man, who was wise beyond words. He was often quietly spoken but when he spoke you knew you had to listen, because wisdom was on the way.
He will be missed greatly, 
Rev'd Alex Jeewan (contact details can be found at the bottom of this page)

A tribute to Tim was published in the Walden Local - see here 
You can also find a selection of recordings of Tim’s sermons on St Mary’s website here

A prayer for COVID-19
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Our Churches

Welcome to our parishes. We are a community of five parish churches based in North Essex. We are also proud to be part of the Saffron Walden Team Ministry.
Rumour has it that silver bells which hung in the church tower, were hidden in an underground passageway which ran between the church
Holy Trinity has a small, friendly congregation meeting in a large historic building. Our different Sunday services offer something for everyone
We are a small church with the nave and chancel undivided. The earliest detail is of the 13th century but the church was much restored in the 19th century
St. Mary the Virgin and is one of the most interesting churches in north-west Essex. It consists of a chancel with organ chamber, an aisled nave, a south porch and a western tower
We are part of the Cam Villages Churches. We are also proud to be members of Saffron Walden and Villages Team Ministry
