Welcome  to St Mary’s Clymping, St Mary’s Yapton and St Andrews Ford



2018 is the Year of Prayer

We will be hosting various events throughout the year in support of this so please come back regularly and check out our diary and events pages.



This year we have to completely remake the Electoral Roll.  This is the official list of those people who regularly attend a service St Amry's Yapton or at St Andrew’s at Ford.  The roll is an important document and our parish contribution - the money we give to the diocese towards the salaries of priests, the administration of local churches etc - is based on the figures in it.


The electoral roll forms are available at the back at the church and we would like you to take one to complete.  A separate one should be completed by each individual 16 and over.  You cannot complete a ‘family’ one because of new laws about the storing and use of data. Plese complete a form if you attend any or our servies, no matter how frequently, and doing so does not commit you anything, financial or other, within the churches.


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect in the UK in May 2018. It replaces the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998) and gives individuals more rights and protection in how their personal data is used by organisations. Parishes must comply with its requirements, just like any other charity or organisation.  Attached to the electoral roll form is an additional form where you give your specific consent to how the data we store is used.  This form has been developed by the Church of England specifically for the use of parish churches and it helps us to ensure that will we be complying with the law when it comes into place.  We would like you to complete this form at the same time as completing the electoral roll form so we are able to store your data and use it according to your wishes.


Completed forms should be handed to a church officer or handed in to the Church Office by SUNDAY 18TH MARCH 2018.  There is a deadline because the Electoral Roll has to be completed before the APCM on April 22nd.  

There are a variety of activities planned each month so take a moment to look at the Services, Events and Diary pages.

You are most welcome at any of the sessions published.

We open St Mary's Church, Clymping, on Friday mornings to welcome visitors and regulars alike.
We'd love to see you if you can make it.

You are welcome to visit at any other time, please see the About page for details.
