Two churches — one parish
For a schedule of this month’s services, see ‘Church Services’ in the main menu above, or click here.
Holy Innocents’ Church in Amberley and St Paul’s Church in Leithfield are both in the Anglican Parish of Amberley. The congregations are drawn from nearby beach settlements and rural areas as well as Amberley and Leithfield.
It’s our privilege to share in the lives of individuals and families, both in times of celebration and sorrow. We offer friendship and a supportive and caring community as well as the sacraments of the church to all who need them. We look forward to meeting visitors or newcomers to our community.
The parish is led by a Deacon curate, Reverend Stephanie Clay, supported by priest oversight from the diocese and a team of lay leaders and readers.

We hold worship services in two beautiful, historic buildings. For a schedule of the current month’s services, see our main menu above or click here.
Services are held here most Sundays at 9.30am but please check the schedule. On the third Sunday of each month, we combine worship with our local Presbyterian friends, alternating between Holy Innocents and the Presbyterian church (St Andrews) on Pound Street.
Please refer to our schedule of church services for more detail about services this month, or check the noticeboard outside or local media.
Our parish hall is next to Holy Innocents’ Church. It can be hired for events for part or whole days, including the use of the fully-equipped kitchen. (The kitchen has a Food Safe certificate and it can also be hired separately for commercial food preparation.) To enquire about the hall and/or kitchen, please phone Pat on (03) 314 8272.
St Paul’s Church (at left) is on the corner of Brighton Street & Leithfield Road, in the village of Leithfield. Services are held in this beautiful old church on the fourth Sunday of each month, at 9.30am, and (during warmer months ) Evening Prayer at 5pm on the third Sunday of each month. Again, please see the relevant page on this site which gives a schedule to services for the current month.
