COVID-19 - Social distancing in the pews has ceased and parishoners have free choice on seating with plenty of space for those who prefer to be apart. In addition, communicants are able, if they so wish, to intinct (insert) the communion wafer into the chalice briefly in order to receive both bread and wine.
St Nicolas nestles in the beautiful Sussex Weald in the small hamlet of Itchingfield in a designated conservation area.
All are welcome to come to the church either to attend a service or just to find a quiet haven of contemplation. The church is open every day during daylight hours.
We are surrounded by our lovely churchyard which provides a rich and varied habitat for the local flora and fauna and a peaceful, reflective space for visitors. It's a real jewel of God's creation.
For details of our safeguarding arrangements, please see our dedicated page.
Visitors may park in the church drive, but please be respectful to our neighbours and do not block access. If the church drive is full or blocked off, please park carefully on the lane.
The church has very limited toilet facilities which are not always available for use.
