Welcome to St. Mary’s Horsham

We are very pleased to announce that weekly Sunday services at St Mary’s will be resuming on Sunday 12th July. However, please be aware that a new schedule of services will be in place and advance booking will be required in order to attend. This is to ensure that we comply with all the latest Government guidelines in relation to Covid-19. 

The Sunday service schedule will be as follows:

  • 9am – Said Holy Communion
  • 11am – Said Holy Communion
  • 3pm – Informal All Age Service
  • 5pm – Prayer Book Evening Prayer

Under current guidance, singing will not be allowed at these services, and we anticipate that each service will last about 45 minutes. All are welcome to book in to attend these services either by:

Bookings for each Sunday will open the previous Monday.

The church building is also open to the public daily between 10am and 4pm (apart from when scheduled services are taking place.)  

Please be aware that all visitors will need to abide by social distancing rules whilst in the church, and if too many people arrive at the same time, then there may be a need to wait before being able to enter the building. (With regret, it will not be possible to buy our famous home-made marmalade or fruit cakes during this time.)

We look forward to welcoming you!

As we continue to adapt to how much life has changed in response to this pandemic, we have the opportunity now to be ‘church’ in new ways. 

Please do reach out to neighbours and friends who may be feeling particularly vulnerable. We have been able to set up a specific email address for any who would like to request support during this time, or to offer help to others in need. This address is

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 all,
