Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

At present, the Diocesan Office is only open for staff and visitors with prior appointments. If you need to contact a member of staff, please do so by email or telephone. You can find a list of department email addresses here. The situation remains under review and we hope to open the office more fully soon, in line with guidance and public safety measures. Our Print Unit and Bookshop are working and can take orders via phone and email and collections by appointment. Please visit their webpages for more information.
