Welcome to Worth Abbey Parish

Centred on the Benedictine monastic community at Worth Abbey, our parish is in the Sussex Weald near the village of Turners Hill, just south of Crawley. A parish of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, it is a living and learning community where faith can develop and the lives of its people be enriched.

Worth Abbey Parish is a friendly Christian church, a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can discover a way of living life more fully through developing a closer relationship with the person of Christ in a community of believers. Our common faith tells us that we are the loved people of a God who stops at nothing to show us this love; and through the mysterious working of the Lord Jesus in his Church we are allowed to share His Divine power.

Worth Abbey is a community where people worship, learn and share and where the important milestones of faith are celebrated. There are many opportunities in the parish for individuals of all ages, and families, to develop and explore faith and to learn more about the Church. All are welcome – whatever their background, knowledge and experience.


Those passive aggressive ‘no junk mail’ signs are not the sign of a Negative Nelly. In fact, unsubscribing from catalogues you never read, and putting a sign on your letter  box can be a small move to make a massive difference to reducing the amount that is sent out and – by extension- will likely reduce the demand.

Prayer for Persecuted Christians

O God of all the nations, the one God who is and was and always will be, in your providence you have willed that your Church be united to the suffering of your Son. Look with mercy on your servants who are persecuted for their faith in you. Grant them perseverance and courage to be worthy imitators of Christ. Bring your wisdom on leaders of nations to work for peace among all peoples. May your Spirit open conversion for those who contradict your will, that we may live in harmony. Grant us the grace to be united in truth and freedom and to always seek your will in our lives. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
