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.  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.

We are currently in vacancy and have 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.

We are committed to the safeguarding, care an nurture of everyone within our communities. Please see ‘About Us and Policies’ for further details on the Six Parishes Safeguarding policy and who to contact.
