Welcome to the website for the Parish Church of Saint Mary, Pulborough, West Sussex, England.

Although we are unable to host public worship, we shall endeavour to keep our Sunday worship on the website as a reflective Service for Worship at Home.

If you are not a member of one of our regular giving schemes, but would like to support the church and its work during the lockdown, please CLICK HERE.

Praying for You

While public worship is suspended at St. Mary’s Fr. Paul will be praying the Daily Offices of Morning and Evening Prayer and regularly celebrating The Eucharist.  While this is done privately these prayers are offered on behalf of us all and in the name of the wider church.
Prayers will be said for our local community as well as the global situation at this time.  We pray that God will help us to meet the challenges that confront us and look forward hopefully, to happier times in the near future. 

If you have any particular requests for prayer at this time please email these to Fr. Paul at: pulbpccrector@btinternetDOTcom or annDOT kaiser@liveDOTcoDOTuk and these requests will be included in the daily offering of prayer.

Each week we will post an adapted form of service based on that Sunday’s liturgy for use at home.  We also recommend our Diocesan website and the Church of England’s website for appropriate resources to keep our spirits raised.

In the Scriptures we read the words “It is the Lord who goes before you.  He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.  Do not be dismayed”.

God is always with us in whatever situation we find ourselves and we remain part of the worshipping community; members of the Body of Christ, even if we have to stay at home.
