    The Church's Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

    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 may 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 Alternatively you can contact the Rector.

    We are delighted to have reopened for public worship resuming our 10.00am service. The Rector writes to us here with specific details and safety measures for all to observe; please do read these.  We know not everyone will feel safe returning to public worship at this time and hope that no-one feels undue expectation to do so. Church at Home materials are available here. You can also receive these via our church mailing list (let us know if you'd like to be added).

    St. Mary's is also open for private prayer and contemplation.  You are warmly invited to spend time in this sacred space to reflect, rest and light a candle.

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

    “All shall be well. And all manner of things shall be well.” 
    Julian of Norwich, 14th century, writing in time of plague
