    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.

    HAPPY EASTER

    O God, who on this day, through your Only Begotten Son, have conquered death
    and unlocked for us the path to eternity, grant, we pray, that we who keep
    the solemnity of the Lord’s Resurrection may, through the renewal brought by your Spirit,
    rise up in the light of life.
    Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
    who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    God, for ever and ever.


    PRAYER FOR UKRAINE

    Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed:
    kindle, we pray, in the hearts of all, the true love of peace and guide with your pure and peaceable wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth
    that in tranquillity your kingdom may go forward, till the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
