Welcome to St Mary’s Walberton in West Sussex, where people have encountered God’s love in Jesus for over a thousand years. We are a community of people on a journey together, committed to loving God and loving Community in all that we do.

We express our love for God in a rich variety of worship – from the beauty and rich tradition of Anglican liturgy and music to the informality of our ‘Morning Praise'.  We seek to show our love for our community throughout the week in a range of activities and events, and through working in partnership with others.  We find support for our life’s journey through opportunities to meet for prayer, learning and friendship tailored to different ages and needs.  
As well as Walberton village, our parish covers the smaller settlements of Fontwell, Avisford and Slindon Common. For nearly 100 years we have been linked with the neighbouring rural parish of Binsted, with its delightful Norman church also dedicated to St Mary. If you live in any of these communities St Mary’s is your parish church. 
If you are visiting the area St Mary’s stands ready to welcome you.  Whatever your reason for coming here – whether you are in need of help; searching for a church; looking forward to your wedding or christening; exploring faith or simply passing by – come and see us soon. We would love to meet you.
