Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Following guidance from the Church of England, as of 17th March 2020 we will no longer be holding our scheduled church services, groups and social gatherings until further notice. In practical terms, we are both monitoring and responding to the Government’s guidance in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The church is also following the specific recommendations for churches published by the Church of England, which are updated according to the latest Government advice.

During the subsequent Coronavirus update on 23rd March, the Prime Minister informed us all that places of worship now have to close their doors for both worship and private prayer. Sadly, St Michael’s church and the parish office will be closed for the time being, as will the church hall. These are unprecedented times and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to St Michael’s as soon as it is safe for all of us. 

Welcome to Saint Michael and All Angels, Southwick.

Whatever you seek – friendship, community, something to challenge, something to give comfort and support, Saint Michael’s provides a beautiful still space for prayer and exploring God.

There has been a church on this site since Saxon times and over the centuries a Christian community has been supported and sustained here with prayer, love and commitment.

Saint Michael’s is the parish church not only for those who worship on a Sunday morning but for everyone who lives and works in Southwick and beyond.

If you want to come here to celebrate a Baptism or Christening, get married or have a renewal of vows; whether you want to hold a funeral service to give thanks for a loved one, offer a prayer, light a candle or just find space and stillness we would be delighted to welcome you.

Jonathan French, Rector of St Michael’s Southwick
