• 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)


    There is currently repair work being done on the ceiling within St. Mary's, so the Sunday morning 9:30am service is being transferred to St Mary’s Hall as from Sunday 2nd November until the end of the month. Our Sunday 8:00am Communion and 6:00pm Evensong services, together with Wednesday evening Celtic service will continue to take place in the church but using the Chancel and choir pews. Sadly, the 10:00am Thursday morning communion (followed by Coffee Time at 10:45) will have to be suspended for the duration of the repair period. We are sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause.

    See the November issue of the Goring Parish News for full details.
