Chichester Cathedral Diocese of Chichester
The church of St. Mary Magdalene is for you and everyone is welcome.
Together with our sister church of St. Peter's, Cowfold, we are a friendly, loving community where you will be welcomed and accepted as the person that you are and helped to grow in faith with others.
Our church is open daily between 9am and 5pm for visitors and for private prayer
It’s important to understand that although we love and care for the beautiful and sacred building in which we meet, “the Church" is in fact "the people" who get together there.
We are all united by a shared desire to grow in relationship with God.
Don’t be put off if you think you don’t know or understand enough about God, Christianity, or the Church.
"You belong before you believe"
In other words, we recognise that faith is a relationship between ourselves and God that needs to unfold and to grow.
The church offers the space and time to allow that to happen and is a place which enables us to explore our thinking about God and deepen our relationship with him.
