Our Church of England Parish covers a wide area, encompassing the three West Sussex villages of Kirdford, Plaistow & Ifold. For this reason we have two churches (in Kirdford and Plaistow), centres of worship and symbols of the spiritual life of the Parish for many centuries.

All are welcome to join our Sunday and mid-week worship - there is a link giving this month's services on our main website, which also describes the various types of service. Both church buildings are open during the day for visitors and private prayer.

Kirdford church (St. John the Baptist) is an impressive stone-built medieval church with features from Saxon & Norman times and four Kempe stained glass windows. Its bell tower houses six bells that are rung regularly.

Plaistow church (Holy Trinity) is a Victorian gem – a stone-built church, also with Kempe stained glass windows.
