We are a community of living faith bound together by our love of Jesus Christ, and our desire is to make his love known to those we meet, both within our village and beyond.
A church is believed to have existed in Cuckfield for over a thousand years, and our beautiful church stands as a sign and constant reminder, to all who see and visit it, that God’s love is constant and abiding.
Please do explore our website and, better still, know that if you visit us you will receive a warm welcome at Holy Trinity, at any of our services or events.
Ascension Day Join us for a celebratory Eucharist on Thursday 5th May at 7.30pm. Cake and Questions has been cancelled for this month, to avoid clashing with the Ascension Day service. Our Next Free Lunchtime Concert will be on Friday 6th May, when Fiona Fawcett celebrates her 90th birthday. She will share with us some of her favourite pieces for the piano, including works by Schuber, Schumann and Chopin. Soup will be served from 12.30 and the concert is from 1-2pm. The concert is free but donations are welcome. Trinity Sunday Lunch On 22nd May, after the 9.45 Eucharist, our whole church family will be enjoying a Bring and Share lunch in the Old School, to celebrate Trinity Sunday, our church's 'patronal festival'. Sign up to bring specific food items using the list in the North porch of the church. Visiting Preachers On Sunday 8th May, Canon Geoff Daintree will be with us to remind us about Christian Aid Week (15th-21st May). Geoff works for Christian Aid as their advocacy advisor and his sermons are always thought-provoking and relevant. On Trinity Sunday, 22nd May, the preacher will be Canon Dr Rosemarie Mallett, Vicar of St John's Angell Town, Brixton and Public Policy Advisor to the Bishop of Southwark. And on 19th June, Bishop Mark will be presiding and preaching at our 9.45 Parish Eucharist.
Today we pray for members of the government, our Congregation, the Independent State of Cuckfield and all who live in the Whitemans Green area. (To see all prayer requests, click on Welcome/Prayers at the top)
Thought for the Month
"The earth invalid, dropsied, bruised, wheeled
Out into the sun,
After the frightful operation.
She lies back, wounds undressed to the sun,
To be healed,
Sheltered from the sneapy chill creeping North wind,
Leans back, eyes closed, exhausted, smiling
Into the sun. Perhaps dozing a little.
While we sit, and smile, and wait, and know
She is not going to die." taken from Ted Hughes, 'March Morning Unlike Others'
