Chappel: St Barnabas

Welcome to St Barnabas, a peaceful and quiet church located in the heart of Chappel village, situated on the Colne Valley in the heart of rural North Essex.  St Barnabas church forms part of our parish along with All Saints Church, Wakes Colne.

The Church holds services twice each month, on the first and third Sunday, and is open for private prayer and reflection on a daily basis.  The third Sunday service is generally a Joint Benefice Holy Communion Service with visiting clergy.  

The PCC is happy to arrange weddings, funerals and baptisms.

The parish of Wakes Colne and Chappel is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSOs. The Diocese of Chelmsford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
