Worship during Holy Week
The Rector writes, this is the most solemn week of the Church’s year; a special time of Christian devotion. Perhaps  join us for weekday worship: morning prayer on-line at 0830-0900, Mon-Thurs; and/or evening worship at 7.30pm in church all days except Friday, (when our gatherings are earlier in the day; see above).   

A candle burns in the North Chapel for the people of Ukraine.

Chichester Cathedral also offers a rich fare of worship in Holy Week, either in person or online via the website. Includes 8pm Compline.
