St Teresa of Avila, part of the Catholic Parish of Haslemere, Hindhead and Chiddingfold.
Welcome to our church - we invite you to look around. If you're not currently a member of our church - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly Masses. And of course, feel free to call our Priest.
In 1953 Mass was being celebrated in the Girl Guides hut in Chiddingfold by the Josephite priests from Barrow Hills at Witley who took it in turns to conduct the Mass. Then, on 15th October 1959, the Church of St Teresa of Avila was opened in Woodside Road, Chiddingfold.The Church's unusual design is due to a planning covenant that demanded the building was put up on the original 'footprint' of the house that preceded it!
St Teresa's is a community run Church guided by the Church Council. The community, under the spiritual leadership of Fr Fergal, comes together in a tremendous spirit of support, to promote the work of our Church in the Chiddingfold area, in concert with the other Christian communities.
Our success lies in the way every church member contributes support in prayer and action to make our weekly services not only possible, but also memorable and uplifting experiences.
Please do come and join us, you will be warmly received!
