Welcome to the website for our picturesque Essex village.



The Church of St Mary the Virgin in Arkesden is an important focal point in the local community. A large number of people attend and care for the Church, and services are held most Sundays at 9.30am, and 8am on the third Sunday of the month, either Holy Communion Services or Family Services, and everyone is warmly welcome.

Evening Prayer is said most Wednesday evenings at 5.30 pm. The Priest in Charge is Rev Margaret Davis and the Church Warden is Cathy Miles. The Parochial Church Council (PCC) meets regularly and oversee the day to day running of the Church. For more information, please see useful information on our website, or the notice boards in the church and churchyard, or speak to a member of the PCC.
