The process has begun to appoint a new Priest in Charge but at the present time, for any queries, please contact the Church Administrator, Jo Rassell via email – firstname.lastname@example.org – or telephone the church office on 01206 243683.
St Peter’s Markets
The village churches have set up an online market place to fundraise. The aim is to raise funds to help support church activities and maintenance and also providing gardeners with an alternative to discarding their surplus plants by making them available to fellow gardeners in exchange for charitable donations.

What are We About?
Our two beautiful churches of St Mary’s, Langham, and St Peter’s, Boxted, aim to provide Christian worship and teaching which enables everyone to encounter God. On a Sunday you’ll meet people of all ages and from many church traditions – and none. We unite as a family at the Eucharist as we share bread and wine together and are always delighted to welcome newcomers – especially those who are trying “church” for the first time.
Our music blends the traditional and contemporary. We successfully combine the fun of children playing simple musical instruments with more formal liturgy. We feed our souls, our bodies and our relationships as we study God’s word and as we chat over coffee and eat cakes after our morning service.
We do all this so that the Gospel may be preached, the faith may be taught, and that everyone may come to know the love of Jesus.
What do We Believe?
Each week at the Eucharist we proclaim: “Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.”
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to take away our sins so that we might have peace with God. We believe that Jesus rose bodily from the grave on the first Easter morning. We believe that he will one day return this world, and that in the meantime we can know him through the power of God’s Holy Spirit within us.
