Welcome to the website for the Parish Church of Saint Mary, Pulborough, West Sussex, England.

A message from Fr Paul:

The Revd Francesca Dixon’s Funeral Mass and Burial will take place at Saint Mary’s Church, Pulborough on Tuesday 29th July at 2.00 pm.  It will be followed by refreshments in the Village Hall.

Francesca has been a valued supporter of our church over the last thirteen years where she has regularly presided at the Eucharist, preached and taken other services and assisted in pastoral care in the parish.  Her ministry amongst us has been much appreciated.  Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Please see Fr Paul's Message page for a further tribute.

The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches
