Who we are and What we Believe
Life Community Church Storrington (Formerly The Community Church Storrington) began in 1980 when a small group came together, meeting in people’s homes. Since then numbers have grown and Steyning Grammar School – Rock Road Campus (formally Rydon Community College) has become our home. Today our church family continues to grow and we are working to see the Kingdom of God revealed among us.
Our Elders Chas Weaver, Sue Smith, Nathanael Edwards, Tony and Ruth Powell are supported by a team of Deacons who are all available to meet and pray with you and are happy to answer any questions you have. Please do not hesitate to ask or contact the church office.
