We are part of the Anglo-Catholic tradition which means we like to worship God through singing, liturgy, and Church festivals. 

Our church has stood on this site since the first half of the twelfth century. It is surrounded by quiet and peaceful farmland and is the starting point for many walkers following the extensive public footpaths.


The distinguished naturalist John Ray was born in Black Notley in 1628 and is buried in the churchyard.

At St Peter and St Paul's, our vision is:

* to worship God,

*to encourage Christian disciples in their journey

*to bring the love of Jesus Christ to people in our parish

To find out what our services are like, please find our livestream videos on Facebook - but the best way to see what we're about is to come along in person.







Being a disciple of Jesus means that we are continuing to learn and grow as we follow him.

If you have questions about the Christian faith we run an Alpha course each year that provides a time to share with others who are asking similar questions. 

If you'd like to go deeper in your faith, Rev Roman hosts a a weekly Bible study, and we offer courses to go deeper in Lent and Advent.

Jesus welcomed little children to him and we want to follow his example.

Our All Age Eucharist takes place on the First Sunday of the month at 9.30am. It lasts about an hour, and involves all generations of our church family. We encourage all families who are enquiring about baptism to first come along to this service.

The death of someone close is a very sad time and there is always such a lot to do when you least feel able to cope.  Whatever your needs, we are here to help at this difficult time.

It is a joy to welcome couples to our church for their wedding. The service is central to one of the most important days of your life and we do everything we can to ensure that it is really special. 



Grieving doesn't end with the funeral. Our churchyard and memorial garden surrounded by peaceful countryside provide a special place to come and remember your loved ones.
