Welcome to Saint Clement's Church

Leigh-on-sea

Prayers for Ukraine

Please continue to pray for our Brothers and Sisters in Ukraine and Russia.  Please pray too for our Brothers and Sisters in Afghanistan and Yemen.  Terror and violence is the reality for so many innocent people just trying to get by, earn a living and support their family.  We must pray, pray and pray.

Face2Face Arts Chaplaincy

For more information about Face2Face arts at Saint Clement's, have a look at our Arts@ page.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like ‘organised religion.’ We’ve been there too!

If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost on the London Road and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts ... and you!
