St Mary’s Hospital, Chichester

Accommodation:

Two single flats have become available.

St Mary’s Hospital has existed on its present site since the end of the thirteenth century; not as part of a religious order but an independent Christian foundation.

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, members of the Dean and Chapter of Chichester Cathedral have been the Trustees of the hospital and its endowments, and the residential accommodation has been progressively improved and increased.  In 2018, four new independent trustees were appointed to bring specialist knowledge and experience to the Board.

Four cottages were converted into almshouses in 1905 and more recently, these have been converted into three flats and a guest room; in 1986 the building of St Mary’s Lodge provided a further twelve flats, and in 2003 St Mary’s Courtyard was completed on land to the north of the medieval building, providing a further six flats as well as a staff bedsit, office accommodation and a communal meeting room for residents.

Criteria:

  • be elderly and of limited financial means
  • be in sufficiently good health to cook and housekeep for themselves
  • be of good character
  • have resided for the five years preceding their application in an ecclesiastical parish in the Diocese of Chichester, any part of which is within 15 miles of the Cathedral Church of Chichester
  • be in sympathy with the religion of the Church of England, preferably a communicant member

Appointments to view the communal areas of the complex and any apartments, when available, can be arranged by contacting the Warden – Tel: 01243 783377.

Applications are considered by the Trustees at least twice a year.  The current application deadline: Friday 26th April 2019.  Applications received on or before this date will be considered at the Trustees’ meeting in May 2019.
