Whether you're a visitor to West Wittering or a new or established resident, you're most welcome to come and worship with the Church Family here at West Wittering.  We'd love to see you.

The church is in Pound Road, West Wittering, PO20 8AJ.  Next to the church is the Rectory, attached to which on the left is the Parish Office. Together with our two sister churches in the parish of Birdham with Itchenor, we form a benefice in the Rural Deanery of Chichester, in the Diocese of Chichester.

A little further down the road from the church is our Church Room which we use for meetings and social events.  We have coffee/squash and biscuits here after the Sung Eucharist on Sundays.  Eveyone is very welcome and it's a great place to meet new friends and catch up with existing ones!
