WORSHIP:
Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday at Berwick Church according to the Common Worship Traditional Language Rite.

HISTORY:
Berwick Church is a Grade 1 listed building dating back to the 12th Century and heavily restored in the Victorian period.

THE 20TH CENTURY BLOOMSBURY MURALS:
The church is of national, and arguably international, artistic and cultural significance on account of the extensive 20th Century Bloomsbury murals. These were commissioned by Bishop Bell of Chichester in 1941.
They were executed by the Bloomsbury artists Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and Quentin Bell who lived nearby at Charleston Farmhouse.
The murals adorn the nave walls, the Chancel Screen, the pulpit and both sides of the Chancel Arch.
The Altar frontal was also designed by Duncan Grant and worked by his mother.

The Benefice website has further details of the church and all services and events.
