sunny church

Welcome to the website for Saint Michael and All Angels Church Southwick.

Whatever you seek – friendship, community, something to challenge, something to give comfort, Saint Michael’s church provides a beautiful sacred space for prayer, making new friends and seeking God.

There has been a church on this site since Saxon times and over the centuries a distinctive Christian community has been supported and sustained here with prayer, passion, love and real commitment.

Saint Michael’s is the parish church not only for those who worship on a Sunday morning but for everyone in Southwick, even those who are not regular churchgoers or don’t consider themselves very ‘religious’. If you want to come here for a Baptism or Christening, get married or have a renewal of vows, hold a funeral service for a loved one, say a prayer or just find space and stillness away from a crazy world, if you live in Southwick this is your church and we would be delighted to welcome you here.

Father Jonathan French, Rector of St Michael’s Southwick

    Hi Heather, We are planning to have a film during the February half term on a Weekday, but haven’t decided on a date as yet. I will put it on the website as soon as we have made a decision.

    Hi father john,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to say some prayers at our son jamies grave for his 1st year anniversary, if this is possible?
    We did hold his service at your church last year on May 3rd.
    I would be more than happy to come and meet you beforehand, but this is something I feel very strong about doing for his anniversary.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

      Dear Laura

      Thank you for your email. Could we just confirm which church Jamie’s funeral took place at on May 3rd last year. Just to let you know that we are St Michael’s in Southwick so we just want to make sure that you have the right church. Could you possibly mean Father John at St Michael’s in Brighton?

      Do please get back in touch if we could be of any further help.

      Parish Administrator

      Hi Ann. Depends where you are coming from. It is next to the back entrance to Glebe Primary School. The postcode is BN42 4GB. If you are coming from Shoreham way then turn into Church Lane from Kingston Lane.
