St Michael's Church Services
Sunday Services, Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals
Under current Coronavirus restrictions the church is open for private prayer every day from 0900-1800. Please observe the notices in the church to keep yourself and others safe.
The churchyard can also be visited and enjoyed for meditation and recreation. You may well be there on your own but if there are others present please observe social distancing.
Regular services remain suspended for now. Whilst churches are not open for public services, the life of the church, sustained by Christ, continues in our community. We seek to be a welcoming family, drawn together by God's love and looking outwards to share that love with others. We continue to worship together in our own homes using material circulated by email and we are using Zoom virtual meeting place for 'after church coffee'. If you would like to join in for worship or socially, please contact Revd. Gerry Burgess, email email@example.com, tel. 01798 831600
Please also get in touch if you would like to talk or be prayed for at this anxious time.
Baptisms and Weddings cannot take place at present but can still be booked for future dates. Funerals can take place under the restrictions set out by the UK Government. Please contact Revd. Gerry Burgess, as above.
To book a Baptism please contact the Priest-in-Charge two or three months prior to the date required. Baptisms can be held during the morning service or by arrangement on a second or fourth Sunday afternoon.
Funerals and Interments
For Funerals, Interment of Ashes, entries in the Memorial Book, please contact the Priest-in-Charge. Records are held of the positions of the memorial stones and burials. To find a relative, please contact the Churchwarden.
Set within the beautiful landscape of the South Downs National Park, the church of St Michael and All Angels lies at the west end of the picturesque village of Amberley. The lane to the church is lined with thatched houses and there are lovely views towards the Downs.
The pretty church, dating from the 12th Century, can seat a congregation of 120. There is a set of five bells that can be rung to celebrate your marriage. A resident choir can lead the singing and perform anthems if you wish.
Immediately behind the church is Amberley Castle Hotel which can host your reception and house your guests in style. For smaller or more informal weddings there are many other possible local venues, including our own church hall next to the church, and there are a number of high-quality B&B’s in the village to accommodate your guests overnight.
Qualifying conditions apply so please contact the Priest-in-Charge in the first instance.
So far his year we have weddings booked on 29th June, 3rd August, 31st August and 6th September.
