Service Times

Diocese of Chichester

The Rural Deanery of Battle and Bexhill

The Parish Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Ninfield & St. Oswald's, Hooe



Following on from the Prime Minister’s recent announcement, I was somewhat amazed that worship in churches is still allowed to take place.

However, following a discussion with the churchwardens of both parishes, we felt the safest option for all would be to cancel all services in both churches.

This decision was not taken lightly, but there is the online service that I will continue to produce. The safety and wellbeing of both congregations is very important and we know that many were feeling uncomfortable at attending.

Because restictions are slowly being lifted and with confidence in the vaccine programme, we have decided to start our services again in both churches on Mothering Sunday 14th March 2021.

I hope you understand our decision and that you all continue to remain safe and well.



Paul is still kindly preparing and posting a service for this Sunday on YouTube.
