The Parish Church of St Thomas à Becket, Pagham

A very warm welcome to our website. We’re the Anglican church that serves the Parish of Pagham, in the Diocese of Chichester. You may have heard us called ‘St Thomas à Becket’s’, after our patron saint, or simply ‘Pagham Church’. These pages are packed with information about what our thriving village church has to offer – we hope you’ll feel inspired to join us soon for worship, or at one of our events. If you would like to find out more about any aspect of life at St Thomas à Becket’s, do please get in touch.


We rely on your generosity.  Without your help we cannot continue to do the good work that we do, or maintain our much loved church building.  Giving is simple, quick and makes a real difference.

Did you know that there is a national shortage of bell ringers?

Do you ever hear the bells at St Thomas a Becket Pagham on a Sunday morning or Monday evening and wonder what is involved?

We are trying to keep our bells ringing, especially for the Sunday morning service, but our numbers have dwindled and we really need some new recruits.

Bell ringing is a fascinating activity requiring physical coordination, a sense of rhythm and good listening skills and it provides mental and physical stimulation along with an excellent social aspect.

Anyone aged 11 or over who is reasonably fit would be very welcome to join our small friendly band. If you are interested, why not come along to the church on a Monday evening between 7.30 and 9 pm and find out more?
