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.


Grace for Family Fast Day

Everlasting God, we give you thanks for you nourish and strengthen us with your merciful love. Give us this day our daily bread.

 We pray for those who hunger in scorched lands, with no food for their children. Together, we cry out for justice. Give us this day our daily bread.

Help us to share generously as one global family, and to hold on to hope for a world transformed. Bread of life, we pray your people may find life and joy in all its fullness. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Prayer for Sick Persons

I reach out to you, my God, in this time of need. Carry me on the difficult days when I have no strength. Wrap me in your love when I am discouraged. May your grace wash over me and refresh me. And as you hold me tenderly in the palm of your hand, I ask you for healing of all my afflictions. Amen
