“Mini Sistine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

What a beautiful gem in Goring by Sea. I got there by walking from Worthing (about a thirty min walk from the sea front). It has so many vibrant colours and has a bit of a modernized side to it. It is smaller than I expected but that might be because the ceiling is not as high as the original Sistine. Well worth the visit.

“The sistine chapel scaled down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

An extraordinary achievement a 2/3 reproduction of the Sistine chapel is a most unexpected find in a distinctly unprepossessing barn like church. But what a fantastic job the artist has done. To avoid neck crick wheeled tables with mirrors are provided and the attention to detail is awesome. There is some interesting modern stained glass and information about the martyrs themselves. Worth an hour of anyone's time

“A hidden delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

I just can't believe this place. In the middle of "suburban" goring. a rather unattractive building on the outside, resembling a chuch hall but on the inside, thesistine chapel ceiling. weird but great fun. Maybe I should not use the word fun, but unfortunately the rest of the church left me without any spiritual impression, so it felt rather like visiting an art gallery, but as this painting was an act of devotion by the artist, please excuse my shallowness in this case. i think this place is seriously worth a visit but I would loved to have seen this in one of our older churches as I think then its impact would have really ticked all the boxes.

“Sistine chapel in a church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a really "must see" church. A local artist has recreated the original and it is well worth a visit
