A very warm welcome to the website of St Clement’s Church, Leigh-on-Sea.

Like all churches St. Clement's has responsibility both to raise money for charitable causes and also to maintain and preserve our wonderful building. We are always very grateful for the generosity and kindness of so many people, both those who worship at St. Clement's and those who value our life. St. Clement's Church is maintained entirely by the generosity of private individuals (time, talent and money) and through tireless fundraising and grant applications.  It costs over £300 a day to keep St. Clement's open and active.   

Coffee Mornings - and the best cake in town!

Like all events at St.Clement’s, our Saturday Coffee Mornings are inclusive and welcoming.

Coffee, tea and home made cakes are served with a smile from 10.15am until 12noon on Saturdays throughout the year.

All proceeds go to charity.

"Tireless fundraising by our wonderful fundraising team enables St. Clement's to continue to serve the people of Leigh"

Craft Fairs

Held in the church, twice yearly, in the Spring and the Autumn.

Thank you to all who supported our Spring 2018 Craft Fair on Saturday 17th March. 

Despite the extremely cold, wet and windy weather the atmosphere in the church was busy, warm and friendly as many brave folk came out to enjoy a great range of lovely products, handmade gifts, unusual 'one-off' items.

Our Autumn 2018 Craft Fair will be on Saturday 29th September, from 11am to 4pm.  Please click here for a booking form for this event.

Christmas Fair

Last Christmas we enjoyed a wonderful two day celebration, starting on Leigh Lights evening, which brought together the community of Leigh, it was a relaxed, festive and friendly event.

Our 2018 Christmas fairs will follow the same format as last year.  On Leigh Lights day, Friday 30th November, the church will be open from 5pm to 8pm for our warm and friendly Leigh Lights Fair, then on Saturday we will be open again, from 11am to 3pm, for our lovely, festive Christmas Fair.  Amazingly we are already taking bookings for stalls at both events.  If you would like a booking form you can download them here.  For just the Friday Leigh Lights event, click here, for the Saturday event only, click here, or for the booking form for both Friday and Saturday please click here.
