Welcome to the Chelmsford Diocese Faith in Action website

Every day, Christians in parishes across Essex and East London are living out their faith in a wide range of ways: running community projects, teaching, working with young people, fund-raising, bringing communities together, caring for people who are vulnerable.

The Church exists for the benefit of all. This is because the transforming news of hope and renewal which the Church is here to share is for everyone. Our work of bringing people together to make a Christian difference is all part of God’s mission for the world. By living out the faith we profess in our daily lives and taking action we can cross the boundaries which have grown up between the various sectors of society.

We can make it easier for people to see the bigger picture, work creatively in partnership, and achieve practical results for individuals, families and communities.
