Welcome to the Manningtree Benefice

This is the website for the mission and ministry of Manningtree Benefice: St. Mary & St. Michael' Church, Mistley with Manningtree and St. Lawrence's Church, Bradfield, including service, group and event information, contact details, media, and information about Mistley Church Hall (Mistley Institute).

We're working towards making this our main website, so please forgive any slight maintenance issues we might have in the next few weeks. If you can't access the information that you need, or you can't find it, do contact the Church Office on info@manningtreebenefice.co.uk or 01206 392200.

Church Community Directory

In order to assist in contact and communication within, and between, the two church communities, we have a church community directory.
It is intended that the directory is not limited only to those on the church electoral roll but is, instead, open to all who participate in any way in the life of the church community. It is available in both printed paper form and by email.
You can apply to be included in the Directory by phoning or emailing the church office.
