The Benefice of Maybridge and West Tarring - formed in September 2019 - is part of the Deanery of Worthing, in the Diocese of Chichester.

St Richard's Church, Maybridge, is only 56 years old and is of a contemporary style. Within the church grounds is a frequently used church hall, which is the original place for worship. The church is located at the heart of Maybridge, which falls within the lowest 20% nationally for overall deprivation and in the lowest 10% for health.

Situated 1.4 miles away is St Andrew's Church, Tarring: a Grade II listed building, built in the 13th Century on the site of an earlier building. The church is set within a churchyard, which houses war graves. St Andrew's church sits in the centre of Tarring Village and is above average for deprivation.
