Welcome! This is your space.

A place to wander and wonder, a place to seek and explore, a place to dream. It’s a place to discover, it’s a place to care, share and smile. It’s a place to invent, a place to aspire and inspire. It’s a place to relax and enjoy. A place to believe, a place to think and imagine. It’s a place to browse, a place to reflect and peruse, a place to begin and succeed.

Chichester Community Development Trust (CCDT) has spent the last 5 years working on raising funds; securing planning permission; developing drawings and plans to transform The Chapel into a new community venue in the heart of the development at Graylingwell Park. We have conserved and enhanced this unique listed building through restoration and reconfiguring the space to be flexible and welcoming. 

The Chapel will open its doors in February 2022, available to everybody from Monday to Saturday, 8am-5pm, with a café; a space to meet; a space to share and come together with friends and family; and a pre-school play area for young children to enjoy. Evening events and performances will begin from 6pm. The Chapel will occasionally be open on Sundays and Bank Holidays for specific performances and events.

We cannot wait to show you around – we will be kicking off 2022 with an amazing line up of Evenings With…’; incredible folk music; comedy nights and music from Chichester University. All proceeds of ticket sales will help us expand our work at The Chapel and the surrounding area and will provide employment opportunities for local residents as well as showcase the incredible talent of the line up! Tickets will sell out so please book soon… More events and activities are under development so please keep an eye on our social media, our website and sign up to our emails so you can keep up with our latest news…

We are looking forward to seeing you at The Chapel very soon…
