The Benefice of Wormingford and Mount Bures with Little Horkesley comprises three villages in the Stour Valley of North Essex with spectacular views of Suffolk.


We are part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Chelmsford. We are grouped as a Benefice, which means we have one Vicar, but each Village in the Benefice has its own Church and is governed by its own Parochial Church Council (PCC).

The other Churches in the Benefice are:

St. Andrew, Wormingford

Visit the Wormingford website

St. Peter and St. Paul, Little Horkesley

Visit the Little Horkesley website

We are also part of the North Colchester Family of Churches, linked with Great Horkesley, West Bergholt, Langham and Boxted, Myland and St. Luke's, Highwoods. We help one another out in various ways; their leaders sometimes visit us to lead services, and there are opportunities for us to work together.

The Parish of Mount Bures is an exempt Charity within the Church of England Diocese of Chelmsford.

Chelmsford Diocesan Board of Finance is a Registered Charity no. 249505.
