Welcome to St. Wulfran’s Church

St Wulfran’s, Ovingdean, is an 11th century church, nestling on the edge of The South Downs. It is one of the oldest buildings in the City of Brighton and Hove. We are a lively, inclusive congregation with a real sense of outreach and the continuation of the loving work of Jesus Christ.

The church is part of the Deans and Whitehawk Group Ministry.

St Wulfran’s is one of the oldest buildings in the city of Brighton and Hove, a place of great beauty and peace, and has been the spiritual home serving the community of Ovingdean for over a thousand years.

Our church is open for services, but it is also open every day from 10.00 a.m. until 4.00 p.m for prayer and visits. It is a place of serenity, of peace and reflection with a true sense of God’s omnipresence. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the Lady Chapel, and this area is particularly set aside for prayer and contemplation.

You will be able to see work by the Victorian artist and Ovingdean resident, Charles Eamer Kempe, including beautiful stained glass windows and the famous Kempe Ceiling.

We are an inclusive and very welcoming congregation.

We have refreshments after our main 10.00 am Eucharist each Sunday, which is an opportunity to meet socially.

Our “Little Fishes” Sunday Club meets most Sundays in term time at 10.00 a.m.

You will find a warm welcome at any of our activities.
