Welcome to Saint Clement's Church

Leigh-on-sea

Eastertide

We are an Easter People and Alleluia is our Song.

Every part of a Christian life is founded on a truth, that Jesus died and rose again, to forgive sins, remake and mend a broken world and open the gates of heaven.  The feast we celebrate is THE event of all time.  It is hard for us with our many cares and worries to see what God is doing in our own lives.  We struggle with the realisation that the immense love God has for us as individuals is offered to and is real for everyone.  As the Gospel says “God loved the world so much that he gave his only son.”

We pray that this Easter we can find the reality of the Good News, the immense overwhelming love of God for all, and proclaim it in word and deed.  That we might recommit our lives in the service of Love of others.  That we might truly sing - Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!  He is Risen, Indeed!  Alleluia!

Please Beware

There is a scam still running, someone is asking people to book stalls for a Craft Fair at Saint Clement's.  It's not us!!  Please do not part with any money for this!  Our next is the Folk Craft Fair on 29th July.

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!
