Welcome to St. Mary’s Horsham

Although it will not be possible to attend church services in person during November, recordings of weekly Sunday services will appear further down this page to enable you to join in our worship from home. There are also many other recordings of recent services from St Mary’s available for you to view on our Home Resources page.

Revd. Alan Mayer has also produced a series of lecture talks entitled “Study at St Mary’s” which appear fortnightly further down this page.

Please keep an eye on our What’s On page for information about upcoming services in December in addition to our planned Christmas services as outlined above. To book in to attend a Sunday service please contact or call 01403 283786.

Please do continue to reach out to neighbours and friends who may be feeling particularly vulnerable and let us know if we can offer any support or assistance during this time. Phone calls can also be directed to our pastoral co-ordinator, Morag Davies, or clergy, Lisa Barnett or Rebecca Tuck.

As we continue to face new challenges and uncertainties, we do so in the company of Jesus, who understands our anxieties, and our loneliness, and promises to be with us always. 

“The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:5-7.

With my prayers for you,

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 we 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.

We 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!
