The church is open every day for private prayer but, sadly, not for communal worship for the time being.

Every Sunday there will be two online services via Zoom: a contemporary Praise service at 9.30am, and a traditional Book of Common Prayer Matins service at 11.00am.

Please contact our Priest-in-charge to receive a weekly email message, including the Zoom link for these services.

As West Sussex is now in Tier 4 and the government advice is to stay at home, church services in January will revert to being held on-line via Zoom. Please contact our Priest-in-charge for further information.  The church will remain open for private prayer only.
