Welcome to the website for Christ Church, Worthing – we hope you will find the information you need.
Following the success of the vaccination programme which is growing at pace, and with the rates of infection declining nationally, many of us are eager to return to worship amongst friends.
The PCC have agreed to reopen the church for normal Sunday Services from Sunday 7th March at 10.30am, and our twice monthly mid-week BCP Holy Communion services will resume again every 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, starting from 11th March at 10.30am
All precautions will be followed as usual, with everyone wearing a mask, and hand sanitiser provided throughout the church.
The church has been cleaned regularly throughout our time of closure.
The pews that you had been allocated prior to the closure in January will be yours to occupy when you feel ready to return to church.
If you cannot remember which seat you had been given, or you now feel ready to return when you hadn’t been able to previously, or wish to come and join us for the first time, please feel free to come along. If you would please come come early, we can make sure we can seat you.
Please do not come to church if you are unwell. If anyone becomes unwell with symptoms of COVID-19 in a church building they should go home immediately and be advised to follow the stay at home guidance. We ask that you wear a mask and sanitise your hands on entry.
We all look forward to seeing you all as soon as you feel happy to return.
Services are held every Sunday morning at 10.30am: Holy Communion on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays, and Morning Prayer on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.
Thursday BCP Holy Communion said services at 10.30am
We are fortunate as we have a large church and so have adequate room to seat everyone. As guidance directs, we have taken all necessary precautions to seat everyone safely, 2 metres apart.
We look forward to seeing you very soon!
