Mulberry House was built in 1767 as a home for the local squire. The moat, which once protected an earlier Tudor building, still exists in the form of a lake in the beautiful peaceful gardens. In 1788, the squire became the rector of St. Mary the Virgin in the village of High Ongar. His house was to remain the church’s rectory for almost 200 years.
Within the grounds of Mulberry House is the Pastoral Centre, which offers support and encouragement through a range of activities. These include: Prayer and healing days, Ladies days, retreats, listening skills training, Men's breakfasts and events for the over 55's.
We also operate a prayerline which is available from 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday. view
