Our approach

  • Our purpose is to love God and to love our neighbour; to worship faithfully and empowered by the Holy Spirit witness to the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ as we serve the extraordinarily diverse array of local communities in Essex and East London.
  • Our approach is to enable and empower parishes and worshipping communities to discern how they are to be God’s people in their own very different local contexts and as part of one diocesan family.
  • Underpinning our approach is an invitation to a way of being articulated by shared diocesan values which might shape how we travel together, support each other and provide mutual accountability.


The Diocese of Chelmsford is the Church of England in Essex and East London.

Led by the Bishop of Chelmsford, the Rt Revd Dr Guli Francis-Dehqani, we are one of the largest and most diverse dioceses in the Church of England consisting of more than 500 churches and worshipping communities and 139 church schools.
