The Diocese of Chelmsford brings together more than 500 Church of England churches and worshipping communities across Essex and East London.
We are the second largest Diocese in the country in terms of population serving a population of more than 3 million people. We celebrate our huge diversity in terms of geography, demography, ethnicity, culture and church tradition.
A church near you
Wherever you live, there is a Church of England church that is always there for you through life’s biggest moments – and at other times togo.
Serving local communities
Our churches and worshipping communities are at the heart of their local communities across Essex and East London. This has particularly been the case in recent years as many of our communities have faced extraordinary challenges as a consequence of the COVID 19 pandemic and the current cost of living crisis.
The news stories below provide an example of the work that they do.
