Welcome to the website of:

    The Parish of Portslade &  

    Mile Oak 


    Coronavirus Update!



    The latest advice from the Government is that worshippers must wear a mask if they are able. 


    There will be a 9.00 am Mass at the church of The Good Shepherd, Mile Oak and an 11.00 am Mass at the church of S. Nicolas, Portslade. There is no cap on numbers as long as those present can preserve social distancing. I am afraid that singing is not yet allowed and there are various other restricitions that I will explain before each service


    I will still be live-streaming the 9.00 am Sunday mass for all those who cannot yet attend church.

    You can follow the service by clicking on the Sunday Service button in the menu on this website. You can also follow it by downloading the file HERE, RTF or PDF.


    Our churches are now opening for private prayer. However, due to the strict rules about cleaning and keeping public areas safe, we will only be able to open the churches at set times each week for the near future.
    St Nicolas, Portslade will be open from 10.00 am until 4.00 pm each Tuesday and Saturday. Mass will be celebrated each Tuesday at 10.00 am.
    The Good Shepherd, Mile Oak will be open from 10.00 am until 4.00 pm each Wednesday. Mass will be celebrated each Wednesday at 10.00 am
    If you need a "telephone visit" for prayer, support or for baptisms, weddings or funerals, please contact me on 07872572681 or davidswyer64@gmail.com
    Yours in Christ,
    Fr David Swyer SSC
    Priest in Charge of the Parish of Portslade and Mile Oak


    As members of this PCC we are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of all our members.

    We recognise that safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.

    We are committed to implementing all safeguarding policies and practice guidance issued by the House of Bishops

    We will carefully select and train all those who work or volunteer in positions of trust.  We will use the Disclosure and Barring Service, amongst other tools, to check the background of each person.

    We will respond, without delay, to every concern made that a person for whom we are responsible may have been harmed. 

    We will co-operate fully with statutory agencies during any investigation concerning a member of the church community.

    We will seek to ensure that anyone for whom we have pastoral responsibility who has suffered abuse is offered support that meets their needs.

    We will respond appropriately to those who have committed sexual offences who wish to join our fellowship, following House of Bishop's guidance and the advice of the Safeguarding Team.

    We will review this policy annually and as part of this process will ensure that all our procedures, particularly in relation to the Disclosure and Barring Service, are up to date.

    Our Safeguarding Representative is Jennie Davies.  Please contact Jennie by clicking HERE!
