St Mary's Church

West Chiltington

A Village Church for the Village


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart

and with all your soul

and with all your mind and with all your strength . . .

Love your neighbour as yourself. 

There is no commandment greater than these.”

A warm welcome

We are a small church with a big heart and a faithful congregation,

set at the centre of a beautiful village within West Sussex.

God loves you for being you, God created you as a unique, special, individual

we’d absolutely love to welcome YOU and your family to St Mary’s with open arms.

We shall help your spirit soar, your heart to sing with joy and your soul shall find rest.

You will come to know that you are Redeemed by God's love and grace through his Son Jesus Christ.
