The Church of England in Your Community
The history of St Richard's Church goes back to at least 1907 when a public subscription list was opened. The nave was built at a cost of £1,441.17s.6d. and was dedicated on 30 July, 1912 by Dr Charles Ridgeway, the Bishop of Chichester from 1908 to 1919.
The church was intended to be built in sections as funds became available. Temporary walls to the north and south of the nave were built with this in mind. The proposed north aisle and tower have never been built and the temporary north wall is still present.
In 2004 the entrance porch was remodelled and a toilet was added.
