Dating back to 1360, the aptly-named 'Cathedral of the South Downs' is unique as a village church. Thousands of visitors come to marvel at its beautiful location on the Tye (village green), at the architecture, or simply to enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere inside.
St. Andrew's is set on a small mound by the river and built in the form of a cross. The central tower and spire dominate the skyline, with a peal of six bells which are rung from the centre of the church.
Because of its location, St. Andrew's is often used for concerts and other special events. We also welcome visits from schools and other organisations, and can provide a guide by arrangement.
St. Andrew's is also a living church - with two Sunday Services held at 8.00am and 11.00am. Full details are found in the monthly 'Cuckmere News'
The church is normally open to visitors daily from 9.00am to 5.00pm or dusk every day. Next door to the church is the National Trust Clergy House.
