Welcome to Manningtree Benefice. We are so glad that you’re here!

(click and drag the photos to the left to see more of them)

This is the website for the parish churches of St. Mary & St. Michael, Mistley with Manningtree, and St. Lawrence, Bradfield, one church meeting in two locations.

We believe that the church is not primarily the buildings, or the services, or the activities, no matter how good any of them are. We believe that the church is the people, messy and complicated, but loved by a good, good Father.

There’s loads of information on this website, and we hope you’ll find everything you’re looking for: we’ve highlighted above a few things that might be most useful, but please do get yourself a cup of tea or coffee, and take some time to find out more about our tribe! If you can’t find the answers that you’re looking for, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help (see below or click here).
