We extend a warm welcome to all visitors, and to you if you are new to Chichester. This Anglican parish on the Eastern side of the city is served by the clergy and people of St. George’s Church, situated on the corner of Whyke Rd. & Cleveland Rd.
St. George’s is a vibrant Christian community, and it is our hope that newcomers will soon find a “home” at St. George’s, and will wish to become involved in the life of the local church, and to join us for worship. St. George’s is inclusive of all people and welcomes everyone through its doors.
You will be assured of a warm welcome at St. George’s. We look forward to meeting you!
