COVID-19 The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.
Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life. See: www.stmaryswestchilt.co.uk
The Rector can be contacted in an emergency by telephoning 01798 669207 or emailing email@example.com
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
WE ARE CONTINUING TO SUPPORT EVERYONE IN OUR VILLAGE
St Mary’s is a Church where you can find rest, peace and a time for quiet contemplation throughout the week.
We are a small church with a big heart and a faithful congregation, set at the centre of a beautiful village within West Sussex. We know that our very souls can feel restless without love, hope and peace.
God loves you for being you, God created you as a unique, special, individual we’d absolutely love to welcome YOU and your family to St Mary’s Church with open arms. We shall help your spirit soar, your heart to sing and your soul to find rest. You will come to know that you are Redeemed by God's love and grace through his Son Jesus Christ.
