Like many churches, the Church of England has good and bad in it.

We pray St. Elisabeth's is more good than bad!

The Church of England covers the whole of England. The Local Church is part of a Deanery which is part of a diocese.

St. Elisabeth's is one of the Local Parish Churches for Becontree. We are in the Barking & Dagenham Deanery in the Diocese of Chelmsford.
