Church of England Diocese of Chichester Chidham

About Us

We are a rural parish between Southbourne and Bosham in West Sussex. St Mary's Church is in the Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors are welcome.

The church was built circa 1210. It is a place of peace, simplicity, beauty, and history. 

We have a stained glass window by artist Mel Howse installed in 2010 and dedicated to St Cuthman and St Wilfrid (local saints).

How old is our font?

Our lively congregation will offer newcomers, children and young people a very warm welcome. 

We have strong links with the local primary school and local residential homes for the elderly.

 We also have a sister church, St Wilfrid's, Broad Rd, in the northern part of the parish.
