Welcome to St Mary's Church, Crowborough

St Mary’s church is home to a friendly and welcoming Parish, located within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. From our senior parishioners to our young children we are always ready and willing to welcome new faces into our community.

This website aims to help you find information about our Parish, such as its history and the history of those who have served within it and obviously what is going on today. You will also find practical information including mass times and how to find us. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Catholic, or just curious as to what happens in a church, then please contact the Enquirer’s Group.

For those who already attend St Mary’s Church, information is available on how to become more involved with the life of the church, as well as useful contacts for the various Parish Groups.

So, whatever your reason for visiting our site we hope that you find what you are looking for. If you are struggling to find what you are looking for then try using the Search facility (magnifying glass) at the top right hand side of this screen if viewable.

Anyone is normally welcome to visit the church, either for prayer or just as a quiet place to sit and think. If you would like to visit for mass or personal prayer, please see "Parish Calendar". Unfortunately church visiting is constrained by the need to comply with Covid requirements.
