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

**St Dunstan’s, West Hoathly,** is a relatively small, local chapel within the Worth Abbey Parish. Those parishioners who have worshipped there value the chapel’s modest size and intimacy. But, in such a small space, it is difficult to achieve the safe levels of ventilation and social distancing that national Catholic Church guidance calls for from all congregations during these later stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this context, each parish is asked to risk-assess its activities, especially its practices around the celebration of the Sunday liturgy. St Dunstan’s remains closed during these winter months of the pandemic because the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in the small chapel space available in West Hoathly has been judged to be more significant than in the more generous spaces of the Abbey Church at Worth. Those parishioners who have worshipped at West Hoathly in the past are warmly welcomed to join the worshipping community at the Abbey for the time being.
