FAQs

Marriages

The Chapel is not a Parish Church and therefore it is not registered for marriages.

Occasional marriages have occurred for members of the worshiping community at St Thomas’ church in the parish of Bradwell-on-Sea and have a close connection with the Chapel or those who are a long-standing worshiping member at the Othona community in Bradwell-on-Sea have a close connection with the Chapel. These are the only qualifications for Special licences granted by the Archbishop of Canterbury who makes the decision.

 

Are there any facilities at the Chapel?

There are no toilet facilities at or near the Chapel so maybe you should stop at one of the pubs in the village first, take some refreshment and make sure you and your party are
comfortable and ready for your visit. Toilets, meeting and refreshment facilities are available at the Othona Community by prior arrangement, Tel 01621 776564.

Is there access for the disabled?

Access to the path from the car park is by a fairly large kissing gate that will allow the passage of large electric buggy/electric wheelchairs. The path to the Chapel is a natural track across open farmland, uneven and stony. It will take around 15-20 minutes at walking pace from the car park to the Chapel.

There are some opportunities to drive down to the Chapel to attend services on some Thursday mornings, Summer Evening services and Bradwell Pilgrimage. The gate is only open for this time.
