Bible Study at St Benedict's (Parish Office)

A 12 week course entitled The Big Picture, about God’s plan of Salvation from Genesis to Revelation, looking at major events and people.

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

Prayer Request




During this year we have learned that the future of the planet depends on our actions. Pope Francis has invited us to move towards “an eco-sustainable lifestyle.” This year the Laudato Si’ Movement wants us to experience the gifts that God has given us in Creation, and walk a path towards the origin of all creation. In the Laudato Si Advent Calendar we give thanks for all that God has given to us.
