Welcome to St. Mary’s Horsham
As Horsham entered ‘Tier 4’ on Boxing Day, and is now in lockdown with the rest of England, ‘in person’ worship services in church are suspended and our services instead available online. Each week our Sunday services will be available to view further down this page and will then remain available on our Home Resources page. Revd. Alan Mayer is currently running a series of mid-week Reflections which will appear each week further down this page.
We will continue to keep you updated with regular email newsletters. If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive these updates, please get in touch with the Parish Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
The church will continue to be open daily Monday through Friday for private prayer between 10am and 1pm. Please be aware that all visitors will need to abide by social distancing rules whilst in the church and please also note that unless exempt, it is now a legal requirement to wear a face-mask whilst inside the church building.
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!
Please refer to the information at the top of the homepage for updates as to when our services will be able to resume once again.
