Important Notice: COVID-19
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus and on the advice of The Churches Conservation Trust it has been decided to close St John’s Chapel to all visitors until further notice. We regret having to do this – the Friends of the Chapel keep it open almost every day, 365 days a year – but in the circumstances it’s the safest option for our Friends’ volunteers, and for all our visitors.
Sadly, the Festival of Chichester 2020, (13th June-12th July), which uses the Chapel as one of its principal venues, has been cancelled. But we look forward to re-opening our doors and welcoming back our Friends and visitors.

St John’s Chapel is a rare example of a Georgian proprietary chapel now in the care of the The Churches Conservation Trust, a national charity that looks after over 350 important redundant churches throughout England, including seven in Sussex.

The Friends of St John’s Chapel is a voluntary group that works in partnership with The Churches Conservation Trust to secure the future of the chapel by helping to maintain it, raise awareness of it and by looking for opportunities to promote and extend its use to a wider public. The Chapel is the focus for a wide range of cultural and arts events throughout the year: it is also one of the principal venues for the annual Festival of Chichester; see our Gallery pages for some of our past events.

Volunteer Friends make every effort to open the chapel to visitors 7 days a week throughout the year: Opening times 10:00am to 4:00pm. If you arrive and find the chapel closed please contact the secretary.
