St Thomas a Becket Church in Cliffe High Street, Lewes, is a traditional Anglican church and is distinguished by its adherence to the beauty, poetry, and majesty of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and the 1611 King James Authorised Version of the Bible.

Our Sunday morning Communion service is at 9.45am every week, and includes traditional hymns from the New English Hymnal, and sung responses. After the service we welcome everyone to tea and coffee in the adjacent hall.

The church is open every day to visit and for private prayer and devotion, from 9am until nightfall or 6pm if that is earlier.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
