St Paul's Chichester

Growing in Faith

At St Paul’s we try to honour the human need to grow in the understanding of our faith, to enjoy God in prayer, and to know and support each other in friendship. On this page there are resources to help us do that. These resources change from time to time, season to season, so watch out and please join in. All are very welcome. 

Growing in Understanding

Wednesdays in Lent at 7.30pm, including Ash Wednesday. 

#Live Lent is the Church of England’s Lent Campaign 2021. A short booklet with a Bible reading for every day and an activity for each week will come to you through the post if you already attend St Paul’s. 

If you are a visitor or newcomer, you are very welcome to join us. Please ask at the Parish Office for the booklet. Alternatively order a booklet at

The Lent course helps us find our own story in God’s story and makes suggestions for learning to share our story with others around us.
