Welcome to the website for Christ Church, Worthing – we hope you will find the information you need.
Following the recent announcement by the Government to move the whole country into lockdown, the PCC regret to say that due to the current high volume of cases in our area, and the strain on the NHS, the PCC have decided that it is in the best interests of the whole church family, and the NHS if we do not open for services at the present time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are striving to keep us safe at this time. We look forward to a time soon when vaccinations have been given and we can look forward to seeing you for our regular Sunday morning services.
Services are normally 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 will resume also as soon as possible
When we are open for worship, 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. Those who regularly attend on Sundays have been allocated a pew, and we are all required to give our names and contact details for the Government’s ‘Track and Trace’. If you are a visitor, please come early, so 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 look forward to seeing you very soon!
