Welcome to the website for Christ Church, Worthing – we hope you will find the information you need.
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.
BCP Holy Communion said services at 10.30am every 2nd and 4th Thursday
As you are aware, the legal requirement to wear a mask has been withdrawn by the Government.
This means that we do not have to wear a mask in church, though obviously, many will still prefer to do so. We ask everyone to respect the wishes of all family members and ask that you continue to keep your distance from each other.
We are now able to sit where we wish, and ask that we all continue to keep our distance out of respect to others
Singing of hymns and worship songs is now permitted if people so wish, though again, this is left to everyone’s personal preference.
When we celebrate a service of communion, if you would still prefer to stay in your pew, the churchwardens will arrange for the bread to be brought to you, just stand or raise your hand to indicate you wish to receive.
Alternatively, you may wish to revert to coming to the communion rail, which again is fine for those who so wish.
Whether the communion cup is shared will be the decision of each priest presiding, and it is your decision if you wish to take the wine.
We are thrilled to be able once again to meet in fellowship after the service for a chat over a cuppa.
Please respect everyone’s space at all times!
You are invited to come to the coffee serving table to collect your drink and a packet of biscuits, as you wish.
We would ask you then to move away to a seat at the tables, or a pew, so we are not crowded and able to keep our distance at all times.
During the week we are also open for refreshments and a chat on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 10.30am to 12 noon, and Thursday afternoons from 2.30pm to 4pm.
We look forward to seeing you very soon!
