This is the website for the parish of St Mary Immaculate & The Holy Archangels. Although the parish is centred in Kelvedon, Essex it also includes the churches of St Bernard at Coggeshall and St John Houghton in Tiptree.

The parish covers a fairly large, rural part of Essex - it includes 13 villages. The parish is vibrant, friendly and welcoming; extending a warm invitation to all who wish to take part in Mass, attend a social event, or visit with family and friends.

New Youth Club

Message from Revd Simon Garwood
New Youth Club For School Years 6-9

Starting this autumn: all four churches in our two villages are working together to launch a New Youth Club for 11-14 year olds. Provisionally called the ‘KAFY Club’ (for ‘Kelvedon and Feering Youth Club’) it will run every Thursday in term-time at 4.30-6.00 pm from Thursday 22 September, in Kelvedon United Reformed Church, Kelvedon High Street. All children from School Years 6-9 are very welcome.

It’s been set up through a generous five-year grant from a local Christian charity, Hands Together. We’re delighted that Jules Caprioli-Blake, Youth Worker at the Coggeshall Youth Work Project based at St Peter’s Church, Coggeshall, is running it, supported by others in his team plus local volunteers. You’ll find more information on our website and at the URC.

‘Come in the Door is Open’
Our own YEAR OF MERCY initiative.

The symbolic opening of the door on this Year of Mercy is an open invitation for all of us to review our relationship with God and his Church. As a parish, we believe we are called to respond to this call together and ‘open the door’ wide with our own Year of Mercy initiative: Come to me, the door is open.’ 


The Year of Mercy provides us with a wonderful opportunity as a parish to renew our efforts to help our brothers and sisters to come back to the Church that loves them so much and to the loving God who is calling the depths of their hearts.

a)  Attending one or both of the Special Masses on May 15 and 22.

b) Inviting someone you know who might be ‘hesitant’ or thinking about returning to parish life to come to the Mass or to contact Fr Gordon for a ‘chat’.

c) Praying: prayer is the most valuable gift we can give to one another, particularly the Divine Mercy Chaplet, The Fiat Rosary and the Little Chaplet of the Divine Will, all available on request from Fr Gordon or your welcome minister. Also, you can fill the prayer slip attached to the letter and place it in one the ‘prayer boxes’ which will be placed in each of the churches.

If you personally are hesitant, or if you know someone who is ‘thinking about it’, please do come and talk to Fr Gordon, or, if you find it easier, leave a message in the ‘Come to me, the door is open’ email address thedoorisopen@kelvedoncatholicparish.org.uk Please, state whether you would like a visit, or just an online conversation.
