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. There's an excellent, detailed, description of the church on the Sussex Parish Churches 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 

The church tower currently needs substantial remedial work, related primarily to damp and to structural weaknesses. The problems are such that our beautiful Grade I listed building has been added to the Heritage at Risk Register, as being in “poor” condition.   The costs of the works necessary are expected to cost well into six figures.  Following several specialist surveys our architect is currently preparing a detailed specification for the works, following which a request for tenders will be issued and a contractor selected.  Our target is for works to start in May 2018.  Meantime we have been raising funds via events (see ACTnow News) and donations, and from a successful applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund (first round grant of £16,600), the Sussex Historic Churches Trust (£10,000), and the Headley Trust (£5,000) we have raised over £62,000 (as of 24 November 2017), but we have some way to go.
