We are back to in-person services now, but, if you prefer, you can continue to join us to worship online:
Welcome to St Mary's Church, Chiddingfold!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can contact the Rector.
Please don't forget to come along and support us this Saturday 15 May! The Churchyard Working Party meets outside the Church Room at 9.30 and a Produce Sale takes place on the lawn from 10.15 till 12. These will coincide with the Joint Churches' coffee morning in aid of Christian Aid so it will all be happening (with due regard for social distancing of course). We look forward to seeing you!
Did you know that St Mary's is entirely funded by voluntary donations? If you feel able to support our work in our community, you can make a one-off donation here. Thank you!
St Mary's can also benefit when you shop online here.
We hope you will join our worship and explore all that St. Mary's has to offer. You will be very welcome.
