The church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close.
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, St Nicolas Church Itchingfield and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for eachother continue but cannot be done in the church building.
The Rector / Associate Priest / Churchwarden of this church can be contacted in an emergency by telephoning 01403 790197 / 264396 / 730065 or e-mailing email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength....Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these."
To protect the vunerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
St Nicolas nestles in the beautiful Sussex Weald in the small hamlet of Itchingfield in a designated conservation area.
All are welcome to come to the church either to attend a service or just to find a quiet haven of contemplation. The church is open every day during daylight hours.
We are surrounded by our lovely churchyard which provides a rich and varied habitat for the local flora and fauna and a peaceful, reflective space for visitors. It's a real jewel of God's creation.
For details of our safeguarding arrangements, please see our dedicated page.
Visitors may park in the church drive, but please be respectful to our neighbours and do not block access. If the church drive is full or blocked off, please park carefully on the lane.
The church has very limited toilet facilities which are not always available for use.
