Stanway in Colchester

Church Visits

----- This Group started in 2013. Each month we visit a different church where we are given a tour by a experienced guide focussing on the history and architecture; after which the guide will answer any questions we may have. The visit will include refreshments, usually provided by the church staff or occasionally at a local pub/café. This gives us an opportunity to discuss the visit and exchange views over a refreshing drink. There is no limit on the number of members but do let the Group Leader know if you will be attending.

We take a short break in December and January (due to seasonal activities and lack of church heating!) and we start again in February.

In 2017 we have visited: The Orthodox Monastery of St John the Baptist, Tolleshunt Knights; St Mary the Virgin, Ardleigh; St John the Baptist, Thaxted; formerly All Saints Church, Rectory Road, Tolleshunt Knights, St Mary's Church, Stoke-by-Nayland.

Lifts can usually be arranged.
