Church of England Diocese of Chichester Telscombe

About Us

St Laurence is a Grade I listed building lying within the Telscombe Village Conservation Area. Records indicate evidence of a church on this site since AD 966. The nave and chancel are mid-12th century, whilst the north aisle, tower and north-east chapel were added in the late 12th century. The chapel was rebuilt in Victorian times, when a number of other alterations to the church were also carried out. The wall paintings on the east wall above the chancel arch are modern: they were painted in 1905 as part of the redecoration of the church donated by Ambrose Gorham.

If you are planning to visit St Laurence Church please contact us in advance so that we can ensure that the church is open for you. 

(The church has closed from 15th January 2021 until further notice, as all Church of England parishes in East Sussex have been asked to suspend attendance at public worship until Covid-19 cases decline across all East Sussex districts).
