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 – Monday 7th May – Lunches and Cream Teas from 12.30pm in Good Easter raising funds for St Andrews.  The church will be open with a display of flowers inspired by hymns, stalls in the Black Barns, and plenty of cake in the village hall!

NEW –  A glorious day, Sunday 6th May for the High Easter 10k Road Race, raising funds for St Mary’s church.  Thanks to Lou and Ali Brown for the great organisation, the marshals, catering teams and all the local residents for their support. 






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.”
Colossians 1:28
