A lovely church well worth a visit. Beautifully attended. Built 149 years ago it was a result of the vision of the Trower Sisters.

The site of the church was given by Miss Georgina Trower of Hollyhurst Farm (now Buckles), Burwash Common; the foundation stone was laid on 20 August 1866 and the Bishop of Chichester consecrated the church on 29 August 1867. The architect was William Slater, and the builders were Messrs Baldock and Brooker of Hurst Green. Burwash Weald was constituted a consolidated chapelry in October 1877, created from the parishes of Burwash, Mayfield and Heathfield.


As part of our 150 year anniversary, we will be celebrating a number of events in 2017  to commerate this .  

We welcome ideas and support on this from the community as we will be making these community events,
