St Mary’s church is now open for private prayer and visitors on Tuesdays 10:00-14:00 (10am-2pm).

There are two Anglican church buildings in the parish of Sompting, including the historic church of St. Mary’s on the edge of the South Downs.

St. Mary’s Church, which dates back over 1000 years, is famous all over the world for its Saxon tower. Not only is the church of great architectural significance, it’s also the home of an active Christian community.

The Friends of Sompting Church is a long-established registered charity committed to raising funds for the maintenance and repair of the historic building. Please click the menu at the top of this page to learn more about St. Mary’s church and our fund-raising activities to support it.
