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

Show people they are welcome at your church this Christmas!

In support of the National Church’s #FollowtheStar Advent & Christmas campaign Chelmsford Diocese is creating a map to show people they are welcome at our churches this Christmas.

We will be decorating this map with a star for each church taking part in the campaign. Each star will mark a church location and it will be linked to that church’s A Church Near You page. People will be able to click on a star to find their local church on “A Church Near You”.



Please add your details below to give your church a star on the map.

Please enter your name
A valid email address is required
