Emmanuel Church

Situated just off the High St, in Laindon Road, Emmanuel is an evangelical and gently charismatic church, with a contemporary, informal and relaxed style.

It takes 'being church' seriously but enjoys having fun along the way! It believes there is a genuine place for people of all ages in the community.

And it provides a wide variety of weekly activities ranging from Heroes & Trinity Tribe on Sunday mornings, uniformed groups, Mums & Tots, Who Let The Dads Out, home groups, coffee mornings and much more!

Christ Church

Christ Church meets every Sunday for worship in Perry Street, near to the Buttsbury schools. It believes God wants you to know that he cares for you and he wants to be in relationship with you.

Worship styles vary week by week but the main morning worship service has something for all ages, with children often going to age- appropriate groups after a short time of worship with the adults.

On most Sundays there is a crèche, and during the month it has a men’s group, two toddler groups, Dads & Toddlers on a Saturday, a Tuesday coffee drop-in and much more!

St Mary the Virgin

This late Norman church at Little Burstead stands on a hilltop in open countryside surrounded by a well kept churchyard. It is a popular choice for weddings and baptisms and there is a strong, regular congregation.

Holy Communion or Morning Prayer is celebrated on alternate Sundays. On the fifth Sunday in a month it holds a joint service with the sister church, St John the Divine at Outwood Common—each church taking turn to be host.

St John the Divine

This church is located at Outwood Common, to the east of Billericay. Morning Prayer or Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday morning; on the fifth Sunday the service is shared with St Mary the Virgin, each church taking turn to act as host.

Weekday activities include pre-school every weekday morning, a carer & toddler group, Messy Church for children of primary school years with their carers, Midweek Break for the over-60s and monthly coffee mornings.

St Mary Magdalen

This is the church in the High Street and people have been worshipping at this site for over six hundred years.

The latest phase of the church's life began in 1992 when Emmanuel Church was opened. A period of refurbishment followed and St Mary's was reopened in 2007, although not on Sundays.

Regular events take place, such as Holy Communion on Wednesday mornings and Alpha courses amongst many others. The Schools Ministry Billericay office is now here.

St Mary Magdalene, Great Burstead

Great Burstead is the ancient parish from which Billericay grew. There has been a church here since the 7th century and the present building dates mostly from the 12th century. Christopher Martin, Governor of the Mayflower, was a churchwarden here in 1620.

Worship here at St Mary Magdalene is liberal Catholic in emphasis, using both traditional and contemporary forms. The church has an accomplished choir, study groups, Mothers' Union, Cub and Scout groups and is open most week days.
