About the Church

Serving the Community in Jesus' name

West Mersea Free Church

With over 120 people attending our church throughout the week, we are a modern and contemporary church that serves all ages in the community through groups and services.

Our Sunday service begins at 10:30am, and on the first Sunday of each month we hold a special all-age family service suitable for all ages. On the other weeks, we invite children & youth to join our Creche (0-3)Causeway Kids (4-11) and Hype (11-18) groups.

We believe in baptising those who make a commitment to following Christ. The church is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain, and a member of the Eastern Baptist Association, which enable us to learn from and contribute to God’s mission for our area, our country, and internationally.

Church for Children & Youth

Groups for Adults

We have a variety of different groups throughout the week for adults of all ages, such as our Sunday services, Tuesday Fellowship, Journeys, House Groups, Alpha courses and various monthly and annual events, including the Prayer Breakfast.

Our History

Founded in 1805, and with the current building constructed in 1841, the church has been serving the community for more than 200 years.

Site Development

We have recently decided to investigate the option of redeveloping our church site and buildings to better serve the community in future, inspired by the work of other churches and the future of our mission.

One of our buildings needs continual repair and the site altogether is unable to meet all of our growing needs. Follow what we’re doing by visiting the site development page.
