Service Schedule Update

Our current Sunday service schedule includes parallel services of Holy Communion at 9am and 11am, fortnightly 3pm services for younger families, and quieter 6pm services* of either Holy Communion or evensong (*Please do check the online Church Diary for any variations to the schedule). We will also be offering a live-stream from one of our morning services for anyone not feeling ready to attend church in person just yet but would still like to participate in our worship online. 

Please remember that you need to book in to attend  any of our services in church and you can do this either through our What’s On page, by emailing sundayservicebookings@horshamstmarys.org.uk or calling 01403 283786 and leaving a message to let us know which service you would like to attend. Booking for each Sunday will open on the Monday before the service, and close at 7pm on the Saturday evening ahead of the services the following day.

The church remains open for private prayer Monday through to Saturday between 10am and 1pm. There is no need to book in if you wish to visit the church during this time.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive updates from the St Mary’s team, please get in touch with the Parish Office (office@horshamstmarys.org.uk) to provide your details. If you don’t have access to email please call the Parish Office on 01403 253762 to let us know the best way that we can stay in touch with you.

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. Phone calls can also be directed to our pastoral co-ordinator, Morag Davies, or clergy, Lisa Barnett or Rebecca Tuck.

Pastoral Care Co-ordinator: Morag Davies pastoral@horshamstmarys.org.uk 01403 240854 or 07974 679399

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,


An opportunity to join Evening Prayer for the second Sunday after Trinity on 13 June from Holy Trinity Church. Click on the video and type “f” (Full Screen) for best viewing.

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!
