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 are currently in vacancy and have recently formed a new ministry group with our neighbours in the South Rodings.  The search is on to find a Parish Priest who will lead this group of 10 villages in the next phase of their journey; the Parish Profile can be viewed on the ‘About us and Policies’ page of this website.

Across the parishes 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 offer a range of services – from the more informal all age services 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 the parishes get together for services.


The land has yielded its harvest: God our God has blessed us. Psalm 67:6
