St. Michael and All Angels Church, Withyham

Our beautiful church provides a fine setting for traditional Anglican worship. It is one of only a few Parish Churches in the area to provide regular services of Matins (11.00am) and Evensong (6.30pm) from the Prayer Book, led by an accomplished organist and choir.

The Electoral Roll is currently 170 and regular congregation is drawn from the wider locality.

On alternate Sundays (2nd & 4th) there is a shorter Family Service (9.45am) attended by a number of families with younger children.

At the major festivals there are combined all-age services.

The times of services can be checked on the Services page.

The Church is open every day during daylight hours.

There is a toilet with facilities for the disabled available during services.

The Churchyard contains a number of fine trees and is open for burials and the interment of ashes.

The main Church car park is below the Church and is opened for services.

All Saints Church, Blackham.

Sadly, it is presently not possible to provide regular services at this Church.

However, services currently include Harvest Festival, an Act of Remembrance at the Lych Gate and a Carol Service.

In addition, there is normally a Morning Service at 11.00am on 5th Sundays in the month (four times a year).

When services are held at Blackham, there is no service at Withyham and the congregation are joined by members of that church including the Choir.

There are toilets usually available in the Village Hall opposite.

The Churchyard is open for burials and the interment of ashes.
