Jesus exclaimed, 'Come to me all you
who labour and are over burdened and
I will give you rest. Shoulder my yolk and
learn from me, for I am gentle and humble
in heart and you will find rest for your souls.'

RE-OPENING OF ST MICHAEL'S FOR WEEKEND MASSES on Saturday 6.00pm, Sunday 8.30am & 10.30am and for weekday Masses.
We are delighted to have received approval from the Diocese to reopen for Masses this weekend 4th/5th July. As we are opening for Mass the Church will not be open for private prayer outside Mass times.

To maintain social distancing we can accommodate a maximum of 80 attendees at one time.
There will be Stewards to welcome you and ensure that all the necessary guidance is followed. When attending Mass we ask you to please:
  • Stay at home if you or someone you live with are feeling unwell or have a temperature.
  • Wear a face covering or mask.
  • Use the hand sanitiser as you enter and leave the Church.
  • Maintain social distancing, as indicated by the signage, at all times.
  • Follow the one way system laid out.  Enter by the main entrance and exit by the side door. After Mass we are encouraged to return home and not to remain.
  • Collection baskets are located at the entrance and exit for your donations.
  • Toilets remain closed.
There remains no Sunday Obligation to attend Mass.  You may wish to consider attending a quieter weekday Mass held in the main Church.

Attached is the guidance for the celebration of
our weekend and weekday Masses at St Michael’s.

Welcome to our Parish of St Michael, Durrington and High Salvington.

St Michael's is situated to the North West of Worthing at the foot of the South Downs, overlooking the sea some two miles to the South, with beautiful views and a lovely Church set in large spacious grounds.

We are a very warm and friendly parish and belong to theChurchentrance Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. Bishop Richard Moth is our Bishop and was appointed by Pope Francis as the fifth Bishop of Arundel & Brighton and was installed on 28 May 2015 at Arundel Cathedral. Our church was opened on the 25th April 1966 by Bishop David Cashman, and we celebrated our Golden Jubilee in April 2016.

ChurchinteriorWelcome to our beautiful church and lovely community in which you will feel and experience the warmth of God's presence, and the Spirit of the Lord. We have many young families in the Parish, and these photos of our Church celebrate one of the highlights of our year, our First Holy Communion Day.
