King House was created in 1993 and is named after Bishop Henry King, who was Bishop of Chichester from 1642 to 1646. When Chichester was captured by the Parliamentarians, Bishop King’s estates were confiscated and his library sold. He lived in Buckinghamshire until the restoration of the monarchy in 1660. When he returned to Chichester, he established a restoration fund to repair the cathedral and Bishop’s Palace. He died in 1669 and was buried in the Cathedral.

King House Prayer
Thank you for having us together in King House.
We ask You to help us give the best of ourselves while we are here,
And that You use the unity of our house to further your purpose in the world.
Keep us ever mindful of the suffering we can bring an end to,
That we might all become citizens of a kinder, more just world,
And lead us to a greater knowledge of Your love.
