Getting here

This lovely church is over 800 years old. Built on the site of an earlier Saxon Church, it is located on historic Roman as well as pre-historic tracks, and now lies on the South Downs Way.

The Church was under construction at the time of the murder of Thomas a’Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170 – an event that led to huge numbers of people making a pilgrimage to his shrine in Canterbury. The traditional Pilgrims Way ran from Winchester to Canterbury, but people made their way from all over the South of England, and Pyecombe was probably a favoured stopping place, where hospitality would have been offered.

An evening service is held at Pyecombe at 6pm on the second Sunday in each month

Holy Communion is held at 10am on the 4th Sunday in each month
