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

Welcome to Sparrows, a project from the Diocese of Chelmsford. We aim to support and strengthen churches to provide high-quality, mixed-delivery childcare with Christian distinctiveness in Church settings. 

They support churches in the following three ways:

  • Sparrows Network - We encourage childcare settings to network together for mutual support and encouragement and keep childcare managers informed of developments, training opportunities and events that may help them
  • Sparrows Partners - We develop partnership agreements with childcare settings, providing service-level agreements, writing policies, preparing for inspections, assisting with governance and statutory requirements
  • Sparrows Settings - We develop childcare settings which are run by the Sparrows Team who take full responsibility for the delivery of childcare, working in close partnership with the staff and the local church
