The South West Essex and Settlement Reform Synagogue is an exciting and diverse
Reform Community based in Newbury Park, Essex. 




  • To be a spiritually rich synagogue which is the number one choice for individuals and families in SW Essex, East London and the surrounding areas, providing a range of religious, communal and educational facilities which are a beacon for Reform Judaism and recognised as a model for other communities to aspire to.


  • To be a welcoming community, respecting differences but united by shared principles and aims, where everyone feels comfortable, valued and proud to be part of SWESRS


  • To be seen in the wider Jewish and non-Jewish community as a respected ambassador for Reform Judaism, striving to support the principles of charity and social justice and working for positive inter-faith and multi-cultural relationships.


Please note that the car park is closed for resurfacing work during the week. This work is planned to take approximately four weeks to complete. Please bear with us whilst we have this important wok carried out and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Street parking is available but please be aware of the no parking restrictions Monday to Friday from 11am to 12 noon.  The car park will have limited spaces for parking on Erev Shabbat, Shabbat morning and Sunday events, however we would ask those who are able to walk from the road to park outside leaving the limited spaces for those who are less able.
