  • Holy Trinity

    A church existed on the site of Holy Trinity in Saxon times and the present building incorporates a Norman chancel. The tower dates from the 15th Century and incorporates stones taken from the castle when that fell into disuse. The church is entered through an impressive brickwork porch dating from Tudor times. 

    Holy Trinity lies at one end of the High street and is the focal point for many community activities as well as being as the chief centre for Anglican worship in the town. Civic services are held here and the modern parish centre to the rear of the church is used for meetings by many town clubs and societies

  • St Michaels

    St. Michael and All Angels is located next to Sweyne Park School in Sir Walter Raleigh Drive off London Road. It dates from the 1950s, when Rayleigh expanded considerably. It has a multi-purpose building which is used by local groups as well as the Church.

  • Grovewood

    Grovewood worship has been suspended from May 10th, 2015
