The Ark

Website closing soon

As you may be aware, there has been a re-structuring of church parishes recently. As a result this website will soon be closing - don't worry, the churches won't be!

From now on, please visit the Capel & Ockley website for St. Margaret's news, and the Ewhurst with Okewood & Forest Green website for news of St. John's and Holy Trinity.


The Ark is where 'Megazone' and other church activities regularly take place. It is also available to churches seeking a venue for away-days, quiet days or retreats.

The beautifully refurbished 'Ark' is a fully-equipped meeting place nestling in the picturesque grounds of St John the Baptist, Okewood Hill, near Ockley.

The former Victorian Sunday School was converted to meet the needs of modern-day Christians, and is an accessible idyll, just a few minutes drive from the busy thoroughfares of the A29 and A24.

Groups of up to 50 can be accommodated in the Ark’s three rooms. Facilities include: kitchen, complete with cooker, microwave and fridge; audio-visual equipment; toilets; disabled access and disabled toilet.

Enquiries are warmly welcomed.
For further details please contact the Parish Office, tel: 01306 712594
