Welcome and thank you for visiting St Stephen’s Church, North Mundham. St Stephen’s is part of a strong and vibrant community in the Parish of North Mundham, south of Chichester. This is a popular church, with a large congregation, attracting people from near and far.
The services during the month offer an opportunity to praise God in different ways. The Church runs a Sunday School on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.

St Stephen’s and St Leodegar’s churches work closely together as a united benefice and are ministered by Revd. James Russell.

The Big Church Day Out (BCDO) is the UK’s largest annual gathering of the wider church that creates a space for all denominations and ages to gather (quite local at Steyning) each year for two exciting days of worship and celebration. Whatever your age, denomination or musical taste, everyone is welcome to the join us at the Big Church Day Out for an amazing time away with your friends and family, creating memories together that you will never forget.

In order to obtain the best prices, we are piggy-backing on the back of Opengate Church (Bognor Regis) booking. We and you will independently attend/camp without any need to be with Opengate – we simply all benefit from a group booking. Costs start off at £51.00 per adults for the weekend, £45.00 for age 4-16, and then £20 an adult to camp & £10 a child. These prices significantly reduce the more people join the group.
