St Mary's Church, Sennicotts is found just off the B2178, a few minutes' drive North-West of Chichester. Formerly a Church in special relationship to Sennicotts House, with a distinct and colourful history, it is now fully part of the Parish of Funtington & West Stoke.

God the Holy Trinity has been faithfully proclaimed here by the Christian communities of Vicars and Congregations in the previous and present centuries.
