Welcome to the Six Parishes

The Six Parishes are a group of Church of England churches in the Diocese of Chelmsford located in rural west Essex. We offer a friendly welcome to both those living locally and visitors – whether you are checking out for the first time what following Jesus Christ means or if you already know Him.

We have a broad range of services – from a modern all age service at St Mary’s High Easter at 11.00am on the first Sunday of the month, to more traditional services including Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion and Evening Prayer. There is a Junior Church once a month at Good Easter (4th Sunday), and several times a year all six parishes get together for services.

NEW –  The job advert for a new Parish Priest for the Easters, Rodings and Great Canfield and the Parish Profile can be viewed on the Diocese website,  here.  We pray that the right person will be directed to apply.  Closing date for applicants is 29th April 2018. 

The Six Parishes welcomed the Bishop of Colchester on Easter Sunday at Great Canfield and High Easter.

We simply seek to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to this part of Essex.

It is he whom we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone in all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ.”
