St Cosmas & St Damian, Keymer

St Cosmas & St Damian is the Church of England's Parish Church for the villages of Hassocks and Keymer.  We would love to see you at our Sunday and weekday services, and welcome enquiries about baptisms, weddings and funerals, particularly from local people.  

Founded in Saxon times, the church was rebuilt in 1866, mainly in the style of the 14th century building it replaced, retaining some original stonework. The tower contains a well respected peal of six bells. There is a 2 manual organ, which was fully restored in 2009.
