Father George

Hello and welcome to the Parish of Goring-by-Sea, Worthing, West Sussex.

The parish hosts two Anglican churches; St. Mary's and St. Laurence's, and is home to nearly 8000 people.

Our church family is a lively and assorted community of people of various ages with a real desire to know God better and respond to his amazing love by serving our local community and beyond.

We strive to ‘grow a healthy church’ and would love to meet you, so why not come along to one of our services.

You will be made most welcome.
