Covid Test Centre

This Lateral Flow Test Centre will be closing on 22nd May so, if you would like to pick up 1 or 2 boxes of tests, to do at home, pop in before this date.  You can also order home tests online.


We are currently playing host to one of Southend Borough Councils' Covid Test Centres for Non-Symptomatic people.

Open daily, this centre offers a walk-in service (or you can book online) for a rapid lateral flow test - results in 30 minutes.  You can also collect packs of LFT's to do yourself, at home.  

Please ONLY attend if you are not displaying any symptoms.  These tests are ideal for those people who have to take tests on a regular basis for work, school etc.  But, as 1 in 3 people have the covd virus in their body, but display no symptoms, it is recommended you get checked on a regular basis.  Remember, is not just about you! You could be saving someone else's life.  Even if you have been vaccinated, you can still catch or carry covid so please get tested.

Having gone along myself, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and, even if you're picking up tests to do at home, it's good to have a test done there as they can tell you how to do it properly (none of us like sticking it at the back of our throats, so have a tendancy not to do it long enough).

If you're at the church for one of our activities, or organisations, pop in and get tested.
