On Sunday 27th the Revd Father Simon celebrates Holy Communion at 9.30am here in Great St Mary's for the first time.

The service will be livestreamed here. We think that last week's technical problems are fixed but if not we will upload the service later in the day.


The Collation, Induction and Installation of the Revd Father Simon Vivian as Vicar of the Parish of Sawbridgeworth took place at 3.00pm on Sunday 20th September 2020.

This was the Order of Service.   

Click picture to watch... We are sorry that the sound quality was poor due to gremlins that were not there in the practice session. We hope the main vows and sermon were understandable.  A particular apology for not being able to do justice to the choir and Director of Music David Wood, who were superb.




Rachel Moate, our former reader, was ordained this Saturday at St Albans Cathedral.  The service, owing to the restrictions in place, was by invitation only.  If you would like to watch the service, it was streamed live on the St Albans diocese YouTube

Rachel's ordination was the last one of the day, and the service at 4pm.
