Beyond the church walls

At Offington, we don't think any church should exist in splendid isolation. Taking the work of Jesus beyond the walls of the church to the wider community is an important part of what we are about.

Turning Tides

Along with many churches in Worthing, Offington Park supports Turning Tides which creates projects for the homeless in Worthing. You can find full details on their website HERE.

Worthing Mental Health Awareness Week

Worthing Mental Health Awareness Week was founded at Offington. It brings together many of the organisations and groups who come into contact with those who have a wide spectrum of mental health issues. Here, they are given space to  promote their work to the public, network together and listen to talks about mental wellness topics. There is more information on their website.


The pastoral leadership at Offington work with local schools, helping them with the religious aspects of education.

Worthing 4 Refugees

Along with other churches, Offington is working to help provide a safe place for Syrian refugees to live, and helping them to integrate into our community. You can read about their important work on their website.

Mayor's Shared Chaplaincy

In 2019/20, our minister, Rev'd Dawn Carn, is the Worthing Mayor's Chaplain, a role which is shared with a leader from another Worthing church (this year with  Rev. Dr. Hazel Sherman, from West Worthing Baptist Church)

Tuesday Lunches

Tuesday Lunches is a social get-together, offering not only food, but also an opportunity to get out of the house, meet and make friends, chat and play games. Oh, and of course get a tasty meal!

Worthing Play Day

Offington joins with other groups from Worthing on Broadwater Green to provide a day of fun, play, laughter and activities for young people and families. The next Play Day is planned for Wednesday 5th August 2020
You can get a flavour of just how much fun it is on their Facebook page.

Stay & Play

How do you keep children occupied during the holidays? We might not have the whole answer, but for two hours on Wednesday mornings during half-terms, and on some Wednesdays in August, they can come and have some fun with you here.  There are no age limits.
