About Us

Together in Sussex is part of the 'Together Network' operating across the UK. It is a joint venture between the Church Urban Fund and the Diocese of Chichester.

We are here to help churches and communities build relationships and respond to local concerns of people where they live and work.

Our vision is to see all churches coming together through action, prayer and giving to tackle issues such as poor mental health or social isolation in a sustainable way.

With the aim of helping churches and community based groups to work together, share best practice and build capacity, to bring hope to marginalised people and deprived communities.

We are committed to keep growing strong links with individuals and groups across Sussex to build flourishing community in the places where they live.
