Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website of the Parish of Warblington with Emsworth.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we are committed to continuing to pray for our community and our nation. We are also offering our services of worship both in person and online so we hope to have something that suits everyone’s individual circumstances.
Church Services in person
We are able to offer one Sunday service in each church each week –
Sunday 10am in St. James, Emsworth
Every 1st and 3rd Sunday 8am in St. James, Emsworth
Sunday 11am in St. Thomas a Becket, Warblington
In addition, we are now offering our more informal style of Breakfast Church in the Parish Hall (Church Path) twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 10am.
Social distancing means that we must limit the numbers in each building and therefore we reluctantly ask you to book in prior to a service. Bookings open on Monday at 9am for the following Sunday. Please click here or contact us at email@example.com or by telephone on 07579 798010 to book for any of the Church services. Government advice requires face coverings to be worn.

St Thomas a Becket is also open for personal prayer on Sundays from 2-4pm and Wednesdays from 12noon-4pm.
The Parish consists of two churches – St. James’ Church in the heart of Emsworth and St. Thomas à Becket Church in quiet and beautiful surroundings at the end of Church Lane Warblington (see Our Parish for maps and directions).
More importantly, we are a community of people who, inspired by God, seek to serve our local community and express the love that God has for all people. We aim to be a community that is welcoming, loving and faithful to God, which is all the more important in our current circumstances. Please get in contact via the Parish Office if you or any neighbour that you know needs help.
We have also created a Digital Library that has services from previous weeks, messages from the Diocese of Portsmouth and some other resources that you might find helpful at this time.
Up to date advice from the Church of England is available here.
The parish relies on the generosity of our community, we would be grateful for any amount you can give.
