St Symphorian

Welcome to St Symphorian's Church which is situated just off the A27 to the north Worthing, in West Sussex.  Having been built during the First World War and extended during the Second World War, the church is a hidden gem for you to discover.  

Our main act of worship is the Parish Mass each Sunday at 10am.  The style of liturgy at St Symphorian's is within the Catholic tradition of the Church of England and children are very welcome at all our services. We have a children's area at the back of church and offer a Children's Church on the second Sunday each month.  We also have baby changing facilities and a toilet with disabled access. Don't worry if your child makes a bit of noise during a service - no one will mind! St Symphorian's Church is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 10.30am - 12.30pm for visitors and private prayer.

In addition to worship, there is a wide range of activities and events offered for the local community to enjoy.  Please visit our website to find out more.
