Barnham Church was recorded in 1086 in the Domesday Book.  It is a Grade 1 listed building.

There is a flourishing worship life attracting people of all ages who come for the high catholic ceremonial.  

 In 2008 a weekly Roman Catholic Mass started following the closure of their chapel in the village and this service is held in the church on Monday mornings.



St George’s Church is a grade 1 listed building and is situated in a farmyard with views across the fields.

 Frequently the church is filled to capacity, not only on special occasions, but at regular services too.

There is a flourishing Sunday School and there are a large number of young families attending.  St George’s, like all of our churches, is growing!
