This Sunday's Service - October 25th

This Sunday's sermon is from Martin Povey on 1 Samuel 20. The sound quality is poor for the first half (the normal camera had a flat battery) but the sermon from Martin is top quality.

No Child Hungry during half term

As we come into half term, we are very aware that there are families in our community that find this time difficult. Without access to free school meals some children may go hungry this half term. If you feel you will struggle to provide a meal for your children this half term, PLEASE CONTACT US and we will do whatever we can to help you!

We are a community church and want to support the families and children in Chailey as much as we can.

Do not feel embarrassed to ask for help!

You can contact us via email (, text/whatsapp (07770537676) or via our facebook page.

Book recommendations

In Pete's messages, he sometimes recommends a book to read:

Church is Open on Sunday Mornings

Based on 1 Peter 2:17, we want:

    • Everyone to feel safe,

    • No-one to feel left out (the same service will be available online)

    • The wider community to feel respected and safe and welcome,

    • To submit to the authorities,

    • To fear God.

We are opening the church on Sunday mornings from from 10:30-11:30am.

Due to the current restrictions on social distancing, we will only have enough space to accommodate 12 people/couples in our church at the moment. This should be enough to handle our regulars (we know a number will stay away). If you are a visitor, please contact Dave Caughley on 07770537676 beforehand to see if we have enough extra space for you

The service will consist of a time of prayer, followed by watching that week's service video. There will be a time for catching up with each other in the car park after the service, while maintaining social distancing.

Remember: to bring your own bible and a face covering; and that sadly we will only be able to listen to the hymns whilst in the church - not sing along with them.

There are lots of rules and procedures that we need to comply with to meet the above aims, so please click this link to read the details of how we need to act.
