Church of England Diocese of Chichester Burwash

St Bartholomew, Burwash

Burwash church warmly welcomes all visitors.  People often come to the church as part of a visit to Bateman's, the famous National Trust property.  We love to see your nice remarks in our visitors' book.

With the pandemic continuing, we still have to be careful, but we are steadily returning to something like normal.  We have coffee together after Sunday service and it's so nice to welcome folk from all over the world.  We have returned to re-opening every day for you to visit, pray and meditate. 

We are delighted to have now found a new priest; we can hardly wait to have a Rector again!

High Street

The church is next to the OFSTED 'outstanding' primary school. Children drop in to the church on their way to school for a drink, biscuits and a chat. Having left their children at school, parents, carers and toddlers can then come back in for coffee and a snack. Lots of Mums and Dads enjoy this, and the Tuesday Drop-In is often an initial step into the church and has led on to baptisms and participation in the life of the church.

Chichester Diocese has released the glad news that a new Rector of our United Benefice of Burwash, Burwash Weald and Etchingham will be licensed at a special service on 20th December.
