Our churches have now re-opened for private visits and prayer. Hand sanitisers will be available for visitors.

Plans for weddings and funerals to return to our church buildings with a minimal congregation are now possible with social-distancing restrictions.  


will be re-opening at the end of the month with the completion of the improvements providing a new kitchenette and toilet facilities.

There will be a service at 10.30am on Sunday November 1st in All Saints to celebrate our Patronal Festival as well as give thanks for the successful completion of this project. The guest preacher for this service is to be the Archdeacon of Brighton, Martin Lloyd-Williams.


Public worship is now possible on Sundays but subject to social distancing rules and so we plan to have one Service of Holy Communion each Sunday which people can attend. As there will be congregation members who will be unable or unwilling to attend public services yet that Sunday service will continue to be live streamed. (email me for the link - Click here to email ) This will inevitably affect how the service is conducted.

For details of Sunday services see the 'Services this Month' page

The size of Chalvington church means that it will not be possible to have services there with the necessary self-distancing.

Services in DEANLAND are suspended as the Social Centre is not available for public use due to the virus.


Both village shops and the shop at Deanland are actively engaged in food deliveries in the community and appear to have a good supply of volunteer drivers. In the meantime should there be any concerns about local people in the community who are in need of assistance in some way I’m very happy to be contacted and will attempt to help in any way I can, even if it's only by making a telephone call.
