Keeping each other safe
Please do not come to church if you are unwell. Let's continue to keep each other safe.
Sunday Worship – 10.30 am
- Sunday worship is held in the church every Sunday at 10.30 am and all are welcome. Coffee is served after the service.
- Our worship is varied with some formal services and some informal services catering for all ages. During the winter months, our services are sometimes held in our warm and comfortable hall.
- New Directions in Worship – The morning service on the first Sunday on alternate months is much more informal than our usual services and is particularly aimed at those who would like a change from, or do not feel very comfortable in, a formal service. The service is participative and is suitable for all ages.
- Stansted Free Church is part of the Bishop's Stortford Methodist Circuit and the West Essex & Bishop's Stortford URC Pastorate (WEBS), which also includes Bishop's Stortford URC, Clavering LEP and Saffron Walden URC

On 1st September 2006, the Methodist and United Reformed Churches in Stansted (Essex) joined to form Stansted Free Church (Methodist/URC). The Methodists had been worshipping in the Quaker Meeting House for over 75 years, as they had no building of their own. They are delighted to now have their own 'home'! The joint church meets in the former United Reformed Church in Chapel Hill, Stansted CM24 8AG. The church and hall have been refurbished to provide a welcoming and comfortable environment with a small fitted kitchen, full disabled facilities and free car parking.
The hall is used regularly by village groups but is also available for hire for one-off events. Free internet access is available for all users of the church and the hall. Please email us for details.
