Hello and welcome
Welcome to the Parish of Goring-by-Sea, Worthing, West Sussex.
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 would love to meet you.
You will be made most welcome.
We are Christ-centred, growing in faith, love and service.
A Simple Celtic Communion: The service will be a reflective and informal Communion Service lasting about 40 minutes with room for silence, contemplative music and most importantly the sacred space to listen to God and “unpack the week” in His presence.
Whether you’re new to the area or have lived here your entire life, everybody is welcome to join us in worship.
St. Mary’s is home to a broad range of regular paritioners from all walks of life, with diverse backgrounds and different cultures.
We would love to welcome you to the church so please feel free to simply “turn-up”.
If you let us know that you are new to the church, we’ll make sure that you get off to a good start.
As always, tea and biscuits will be served after the service where you can get to know your fellow paritioners.
Our services are easy to follow, relaxed and suitable for all ages
We welcome children and have a range of toys and books
available for them at the back of the church
Guides, Brownies and Rainbows participate in the services on parade Sundays
Please come along, you will be made very welcome
Join us in the hall for a cuppa and chat before the service
Transport a problem? We’ll arrange to pick you up.
Coming on your own? We’ll arrange for a ‘church-buddy’ to meet you on arrival and guide you through the service and introduce you to others.
