• Welcome


    We are a lively village church with strong community links where you will find many opportunities to grow in faith and fellowship. Offering an inclusive welcome is an important part of who we are, so whoever you are, we look forward to getting to know you! For any enquiries, queries or simply to get in touch please contact the Rector, Rev’d Dr. Rachel Greene

    Our church building is undoubtedly one of the landmarks that makes Chiddingfold special.  The first recorded building on the present site was c1180, but there were probably people gathering in this spot for worship many years before.  The building is Grade 1 listed and unique amongst other listed buildings in the village.  

    However, the church is no monument or museum!  Throughout its history, it has been and still is today, home to a thriving Christian community who meet together for worship and who reach out in service to our village and the wider world.  St Mary's is an Inclusive Church.

    St. Mary’s is very mindful of the care, well-being, and safeguarding of all our children and vulnerable adults. We adhere diligently to diocesan and national safeguarding guidelines.  Our safeguarding handbook can be downloaded here. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Ruth Goddard who can be contacted at stmaryssafeguarding@outlook.com. Alternatively, you can contact the Rector.


    Current Arrangements (January 2021)

    During lockdown, public worship is suspended and we invite you to join us on-line on Sundays at 10:00 am.

    There are lots of opportunities for all ages to pray together, learn together, serve together and have fun.  You can receive details about them via our church mailing list.

    Ideas and supplies for Church at Home are available on our Resources page and in church.

    St. Mary's remains open every day of the week from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm for private prayer and contemplation.

    We ask that you re-double your efforts around "hands, face and space" to help keep our community safe.

    Please support St. Mary's work in our community.  You can make a one-off donation here.

    St Mary's can also benefit when you shop on-line here.

    We hope you will join our worship and explore all that St. Mary's has to offer.
