Architect: W.H. Romaine-Walker
The original proposal to build an Anglican Church in South Lancing came in 1880 from the Vicar of Lancing, the Reverend F. Fisher Watson. Designed by W.H. Romaine-Walker, the proposal was abandoned a short time later, due to Watson’s sudden death. Owing to the increase in population, however, the need for a new church became more pressing. A public meeting was held on 2 July 1912, at which a decision was made to build a church South of the railway line. A committee was appointed, and Mr. Carr Lloyd of Lancing Manor gave a plot of land next to the Parish Hall in South Street. The plans of Mr. Arthur Young, of Messrs. Arthur Young and Allen D. Reid, were accepted.
