UPDATE 16TH JANUARY 2021: St Mary’s Church will not be open for private prayer on Wednesdays and Saturdays with immediate effect.
May I wish you all a happy New Year, even if this one is a little more challenging than we had hoped for!
The Government has asked us to stay at home to save lives and protect the NHS.
Due to the current pressure on our local hospitals, both the PCC’s of St Mary’s Newick and St Peter’s Chailey have decided to offer digital services only for the time being via:
We continue to urge everyone to be exceptionally cautious and, in particular, to do everything possible to prevent mingling outside of households and support bubbles.
We acknowledge and share the sadness many are feeling at not being able to meet together as we would usually do at the moment and prayerfully and confidently look forward to better times ahead
And so we find ourselves in lockdown once again…

This Year’s Service of Lessons and Carols
A traditional service of carols and readings.
The music will be sung and played by our own Choir and recordings from the choir of Chichester Cathedral, and include both well-loved carols and a selection of other pieces in a range of styles.
There’s something very special about the Advent Sundays leading up to when Jesus was born. Join in with these activities as we prepare for and celebrate Christmas – and as we remember the Comfort and Joy that Jesus brings to us all.

A call to prayer for the nation
On Wednesday 4th November, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and Bishop of London called the Church of England to prayer for the nation throughout the month of November. We are being encouraged to pray daily for a specific area of national concern, culminating in a collective moment of prayer at 6pm each evening, with cathedrals and churches across the country invited to ring a bell at this time. There is a simple weekly cycle, praying for a specific area each day including the NHS and frontline workers, the bereaved and those struggling with physical and mental ill-health, and for children and young people. A selection of resources including daily prayers, social media content and a prayer booklet have been made available on the Church of England website to guide prayer during this period.
