History of the Church & The Friends
With parts of the church dating back to pre-Roman times, there is always something that needs attention
St. Peter & St. Paul Church
Grade I Listed Building
The beautiful, historic Church of St Peter and St Paul has stood in the West Mersea village centre for many centuries and is a well loved landmark for the local community and visitors. The cost in both time and money to preserve, maintain and develop this ancient Grade1 Listed Building is high and it is no longer possible for the congregation alone to fund.

The Friends of West Mersea Parish Church
A group interested in the preservation of the building
The Friends of West Mersea Parish Church was established as a group of interested people from both the congregation and the wider community, who wish to support and maintain this wonderful Mersea ancient building, as this requires a long term sustainable commitment. In this way we will ensure that this generation hands the Church on in good order to the next, just as previous custodians have done. ‘Friends’ organisations have been extremely successful both locally and nationally in achieving these objectives.
