Welcome to St Nicholas'

St Nicholas’ is the Parish Church of Arundel. It's home to a warm, friendly and faithful Christian community in the orthodox catholic tradition of the Church of England. Nourished by word and sacrament we seek to be faithful disciples of Christ, living and proclaiming his gospel in our daily lives.

You will find details of our regular services on our Worship page.

Built in 1380 on the site of an earlier church, St Nicholas’ is a popular destination for the many visitors to the historic town of Arundel. The church is open daily to visitors and those who seek a quiet place to reflect and pray.

Whether you are coming to St Nicholas’ to marvel at its historic architecture, to find a place of solace and prayer, or to join us in worship, we pray that in this sacred place you will be truly touched by the abundant grace, mercy and love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
