• “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.”

    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.
