Diocese of Chichester

...that the universe, our world and all the 

people in it have a purpose.

We are not here by accident.

The Diocese of Chichester serves the two English counties of East and West Sussex and the new city of Brighton and Hove. For nearly 1500 years we have tried to tell and show the people of Sussex that God loves them and wants the best for their lives, not just now, but for ever. Of course, many people think this is an idle dream, but we believe it is true. That is one of the reasons why our parishes cover the whole of Sussex (“every blade of grass is in somebody’s parish” is the way someone once put it).
