St John the Baptist Church

The ministry team, the people of St John the Baptist Church, Westbourne and Woodmancote Chapel, warmly welcome you to the parish.

We are a vibrant church family with a wide range of activities for all ages. You can find us in West Sussex on the border with Hampshire.

Come and discover church in this community. If you are new to church, find out about our different services or come along to an event or activity. On our website you can find information to help you arrange baptisms, weddings or funeral services.

The parish hall provides a valuable community resource and activity base, and it can be booked for receptions and events.

We look forward to getting to know you and sharing in worship, fellowship and mutual support.
