About The Parish
We, the parish of Worth Abbey, in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, welcome parishioners from a wide area. We benefit from a unique location among the Benedictine monastic community of Worth. We wish to become, by the grace of God, a strong Community, united in prayer to Jesus and to one another, by relations of love and commitment.
Our mission is to foster values of welcome and hospitality towards our fellow Christians, and to those of other faiths and none.
We are committed to service and outreach to the poor and those in need; to evangelisation; to the young; and to the protection of God’s Creation.
We seek to build upon existing work to nurture a flourishing parish
