St Botolph’s Church      


Thought for the Week              

For no one is redeemed except through unmerited mercy, and no one is condemned except through merited judgement. 

St Augustine of Hippo

Although steeped in history and host to a wide variety of cultural events, Saint Botolph's Church is first and foremost a place where Christians gather to take part in services, pray together and support each other in Ministry.

Saint Botolph’s Work Today

This Church of England Church is part of the Diocese of Chelmsford and in the Episcopal area of Colchester. We share a relationship with other churches within the town. Examples of shared activities include a Bible Study Group and worship with Castle Methodist Church.  St Botolph’s also helps support the Night Shelter, the Soup Run for the homeless and the Street Pastors as well as other social and Christian action in the town and further afield. When you visit this Church you are not visiting a museum but a lively centre of worship and music. The Church has a Choral Society and an orchestra that perform concerts throughout the year. Because of the excellent acoustics and comfortable surroundings many other musical groups also use the church. See Concerts
