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, and several times a year all six parishes get together for Sunday services.

From 11th March 2017, the Six Parishes are in vacancy until a new Parish Priest is appointed, more details on the ‘About’ page of this website.  Services continue as normal and details can be found here.  And if you need to get in touch with us or have any enquiries please continue to send these via the Parish Administrator, details on the contacts page. 

NEW – Would you like to ‘Get to know the Bible better’?  Starting in January all are welcome with groups on Tuesday mornings and Monday evenings.

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.”
Colossians 1:28
