We’re looking for people to make a difference in our community and across the world by helping others Belong, Believe and Become. We meet together on Sundays and run activities for the whole community during the week.



Throughout history churches have gathered to express their faith and encounter Jesus through worship, learning and prayer.

At Arun Church, we meet together most Sunday mornings at The Littlehampton Academy from 10:00am.

On the first Sunday of each month we also have an Evening Service at 6pm in the same location.

Visitors are ALWAYS welcome – come and join us!

What to Expect

When you walk in, you will meet our Welcome team in blue T-shirts – they are there to help so please say hello and take a Welcome Pack. Refreshments are served from 10-10:30am, so feel free to grab a tea, coffee or squash (maybe even a biscuit or donut)!

The service starts at 10:30. We usually have around 400 people attending, but you can sit anywhere you like. We’re also pretty informal, so wear whatever is comfortable for you.

Our Sunday services usually last about an hour and a half.  Although the format varies, there is something for all-ages. We usually have a time of singing songs with a live band then a short bible-based talk aimed at adults.

There is always something for the kids too – either a fun presentation in the main service, or a dedicated kid’s programme on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.

Community Is Important To Us

We put a lot of resources into activities that bring people together, allowing us to share life in fun and faith. We run some events focussed on learning and deepening our Christian faith, but we also provide social spaces to build connection with others.

Whatever your journey, we would love you to join us. That might be for a coffee in our cafe, or using our PlayCentre Pre-School and Nursery. Perhaps you can join us for board games, or sign up for the Alpha course.

Kids, Youth & Families

We run a huge variety of activities for under 18’s. Options include Sparks parent and toddler group, Kickstart The Event annual summer playscheme, and Arun Youth Projects – our network of youth clubs across Littlehampton, Rustington and East Preston.

Growth Track

God has an incredible purpose for your life and the Growth Track is designed to help you connect with that purpose. We run a series of courses which explore what it looks like to know God’s love, to connect with church, to find freedom from fear, to discover your purpose and make a difference with your life!


LifePods are the heartbeat of our church. They are small groups that meet in people’s homes during the week to build friendships, to support and encourage one another, and are the best way to feel at home in the church. LifePods are a safe and informal environment to learn and grow together through prayer, Bible study and discussion.

Other Activities

In addition to the few listed above, there are also regular prayer meetings, women’s and men’s groups, Frontline for over 50’s, board game evenings and much more!
