Welcome


Welcome to St Michael & All Angels Church in Amberley, in the parish of Amberley with North Stoke. St Michael's is the largest of the four churches in the Wildbrooks Benefice of West Sussex. The land around St Michael's has belonged to the church from around 670AD, though the building itself dates to around 1100AD.  A history of St Michael's Church and of Amberley in general has been written by local historian and author, Robert  Hutchinson, and can be seen on the Amberley Parish Council website. 

Our worship reflects the old and the new. On most Sundays we celebrate communion with the modern wording and occasionally we use the Book of Common Prayer. Our music is also a mix of old and new.

ACTnow - Amberley Church Tower Appeal

Recent surveys of St Michael's have indicated that the tower needs substantial remedial work, likely to cost well into six figures over the next year or two. The ACTnow group was formed to raise funds for this work, which relates primarily to damp problems and to structural weaknesses.

The first step was to obtain specialist advice on what exactly was needed, and what the priorities were, since some of the remedial work is more urgent than others; the next step was to obtain costings for the highest priority work.  We have been raising funds via events (see our blog page) and donations, and from a successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Including a first round of HLF funding we have raised nearly £43,000 (as of July 2017), but we have some way to go.
