During the coronavirus epidemic you can watch our online services on our YouTube channel. As the churches in the parish start to re-open, please see our Parish Website for the latest information on Sunday worship.

The Octagon parish is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of Chichester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services. For more information, including telephone numbers, see the Safeguarding page for this church.
