A Prayer for such a time as this... ​

May God bless you with love,
encourage you in faith,
and strengthen you with hope.

In the midst of uncertainty and anxiety,
let us work together,
trust in the strength of God,
and know God's love and care for us.

Let us not be dominated by panic and fear,
but with hope and trust in our God who is with us,
and love and compassion for one another.

We are a small chapel in the heart of a Sussex village. Our services are a mix of traditional and modern with an active worship group. Our congregation is mainly made up of older folk, but we welcome all ages. Services include an all age message, and a Sunday Club for younger people is available when needed.

We are one of fifteen churches in the West Sussex (Coast and Downs) Circuit, sharing a small number of full-time ministers. We share our Minister with the church at Goring.

We enjoy very close links with all the other churches in the area, and have long been part of an Ecumenical Covenant with the local Anglican and Catholic Churches. We rejoice that this has now been expanded into an Ecumenical Partnership with all the Churches in the area, allowing us to take part in a truly open Christian witness to our community. Our involvement in that local community includes a number of associations and clubs, and we are especially proud of our contribution to the Inter-Church Luncheon Club.

We offer a warm welcome to all visitors to our services and our social events. In 2001 we refurbished the church, removed the pews and levelled the floor, and can now provide flexible seating to suit a variety of different services and events.

The picture below shows our Church from the front arch which is covered by a lovely rose, providing a wonderful smell of roses in the late spring and early summer.
