About Us

Originating from the 12th century, the church lies at the centre of this Sussex Weald village, is open daily and is alongside a traditional village pub!

The majority of the church is in Early English style with suggestions of Saxon and Norman influence in the architecture.

The nave and chancel date from the middle of the 12th century; the 'unusual' tower was built in 1536-1538 and later additions were made by the Victorians.

Set immediately behind and above the houses in The Street, visitors pass through a handsome lychgate made of Sussex oak, Sussex marble, Sussex millstones and Horsham stone.

The old Inn opposite the steps up to the church is appropriately called The Eight Bells with the church boasting the oldest peal of eight bells in Sussex.


We are a friendly, loving community where you will be welcomed and accepted as the person that you are and helped to grow in faith with others.

Don’t be put off if you think you don’t know or understand enough about God, Christianity, or the Church.

"You belong before you believe"

In other words, faith is a relationship between ourselves and God that needs to unfold and to grow.

The Church offers the space and time to allow that to happen and is a place which enables us to explore our thinking about God and deepen our relationship with him.

Come on in - we look forward to welcoming you!
