Welcome to St Mary’s Horsham
You may be “checking us out” for one of any number of reasons. Perhaps you’re moving into the Horsham area, or maybe you’re thinking about getting married, or you’re just curious about Christianity.
There’s a lot going on at St. Mary’s, so I hope you find what you’re looking for quickly and easily – and that these pages give you a good flavour of our vision, and of the many exciting aspects of our Church life.
This is our welcome mat on the internet but, as the saying goes “there comes a time when you have to put skin on it !” So I do hope you will have a chance to come & experience St. Mary’s in person soon – to enjoy a sense of God’s own presence, His welcome to community and invitation to belong ..
We look forward to meeting you!
Guy Bridgewater (Vicar & Rural Dean of Horsham)
