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.
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.
Harvest Supper - Saturday 2 October: Unfortunately, it has not been possible to organise an event this month.
Do bring harvest goods to the church which will be given to Littlehampton Food Bank. The following are requested: UHT milk , sugar, squash & UHT fruit juice, rice pudding & custard, tinned fruit, instant coffee, hot chocolate, deodorant & soap; shampoo & shower gel, jam, peanut butter, etc.

Caring for Creation - We can all do our bit
A St. Mary’s home group have been studying climate change and we felt it is too important a topic to keep to ourselves. See HERE what Peter Brown said at the recent APCM and there is an article by Ian Senior on page 43 of the June issue of the Parish News. It’s surely time for us to respond as a church and we ask the PCC and the whole church to consider how this might be taken forward. Interested? Please email HERE
