The Church

church1St Paul’s is a flourishing Anglican church in the heart of Chichester, a worshipping family comprising all ages, committed to the daily rhythm of prayer and praise through word and sacrament.
We are a large and growing Church of England church with a bustling Parish Centre which is well used by the church members and wider community and a popular venue for the annual Festival of Chichester.
Respectful of tradition and alive to change, we gather week in week out to feast at Our Lord’s Supper: all are welcome.
The building is large with great acoustics – ideal for musical concerts and performances. The Church has level access for wheelchairs. There are disabled toilets which are easily accessible from the rear of the Church.
We have a wide range of services and groups to suit most styles and ages. We also run a number of weekly and monthly groups, including youth activities, comnmunity lunches and social nights. More details can be found on the services and groups pages.
St Paul’s Church has a capacity of over 250, with a further 90 seats in the gallery, all with excellent visibility – no pillars in the way! The interior is surprisingly bright and airy, the┬ámore so because of the sombre external appearance, and the Church has double glazing that removes all hint of external noise from the main road outside.

Built: 1836
Architect: Joseph Butler
