Our Vision

We are a Christian Church in West Sussex, UK. We serve the villages of Handcross, Pease Pottage, Slaugham, Warninglid, and Staplefield although we also have members from the surrounding towns and villages. We are a United Benefice within the Diocese of Chichester made up of the Parishes of Slaugham and Staplefield Common.

  • We believe in a personal God who can be known and experienced today.
  • We take the Bible seriously, believing it reveals the truth about God and provides practical help for living fulfilled lives.
  • We are centred on Jesus Christ, who reveals God to us, demonstrates amazing love and changes lives.
  • We are far from perfect, being ordinary and fragile people, but we aim to be a fellowship that is:
    • WELCOMING – a place where people can belong; of acceptance and love that values people for who they are.
    • CARING – a place where you matter; of forgiveness, healing, encouragement, support, hope and prayer.
    • SERVING – we want to get involved in our local community and beyond. Your time and strengths can help others.
    • SHARING – we have experienced the life-changing power of Christ and want to share it with others through our lives, our love and our words.
