Welcome to the Six Parishes

The Six Parishes are part of 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.

Along with our four neighbouring churches which make up the parish of the South Rodings, 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.  Service details can be found on the ‘When we meet’ page.

We are delighted to announce the appointment of the Rev Robert Stone at Priest-in-Charge to the 10 churches of the Easters, Rodings and Great Canfield.  Robert will be licensed by the Bishop of Colchester and installed by the Archdeacon of Stansted on Thursday 23rd January 2020 at 7.30pm at St Mary the Virgin, High Easter.  If you are planning to attend and travelling by car, please can we ask you to park at Lodge Coaches or the village hall where a shuttle bus will be provided to bring you to and from the church, alternatively it is about a 10 minute walk along The Street.  For more information, please contact the Parish Administrator.


We are committed to Safeguarding children and young people and vulnerable adults.   The PCCs have adopted the Church of England’s policies and best-practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website: https://www.churchofengland.org/more/safeguarding

If you wish to contact our Parish Safeguarding Representative please see ‘About Us and Policies’.
