• Hello and welcome to our two Anglican (Church of England) churches (St Mary’s and St Laurence’s) in the Parish of Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex.  This parish is home to a community of nearly 8000 people living just a couple of miles to the west of Worthing town centre.

    Our church family is a lively and assorted community of people of various ages with a real desire to know God better and respond to his amazing love by serving our local community and beyond. We continue to strive to ‘grow a healthy church’. We would love to meet you so why not come along to one of our services. You will be made most welcome.

    Father George (Vicar of Goring)


    Our Sung Eucharist service on Sunday the 21st of September will now be at 10:00am in St Mary's (combined service).

    Our visiting preacher then is Reverend Richard Rukundo from the Church of Uganda. Rev Richard is the Coordinator of Children's Ministry work for the Anglican Province of Uganda. He has responsibility for the COU's ministry to children throughout the whole of that country. This is his first visit to the UK and Goring is his first port of call in a two months tour visiting supporting churches throughout the country. See also the Mission Boards in both churches for further details.
