Welcoming Children

We are a child friendly church. Jesus welcomed little children and said we should be like them.

Parents and children should always feel at home in St Wulfran’s. We have the front pews for smaller children and their parents, and we try to involve older ones in taking part in our worship. The First Sunday Eucharist is aimed at younger people in particular.

Our Sunday Club is held in the Church Room.

Confirmation preparation takes place as required and Ovingdean co-operates with other churches in the Deans Group in planning Confirmation services. Anyone wishing to be confirmed should contact the Parish Priest.


Flowers arraned in church for harvest festival.


In addition we seek to help nurture children by supporting the Ovingdean Nursery School which meets every morning from 8.30 until 1.00 in the Church Room. This lively and friendly little school provides lots of activities to help stimulate growing minds in a safe environment. Please telephone 01273 302991 for further details.
