About us

We are the Anglican (Church of England) parish of East and West Tilbury and Linford. The ancient parish church of St. Catherine is located adjacent to Coalhouse Fort at the end of Princess Margaret Road in East Tilbury Village.

East Tilbury is considered to be the place "Tilaburg" at which St. Cedd founded a Christian community amongst the East Saxons. More information can be found here.

Because of the isolation, the church is locked apart from when it is open for services or other parish events. To check dates please see our "What's On" page.

If you would like to visit the church please contact our Priest in Charge or one of the Churchwardens.

Our other church is dedicated to St. Francis and is in LInford on the corner of Lower Crescent and Somerset Road.

The annual report and finacial statements of the parish for 2020 can be found here.
