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.
Michael's recovery Michael, our vicar, expects to be back with us in September. However, his recovery from illness is ongoing, and we will be encouraging him to take things slowly! Please see notices in the weekly pew sheet, and posters in the church porch, for details of which services will go ahead each week. Advance Notice The Church Office will be closed on Thursday 1st September, and from Thursday 8th September until Tuesday 20th September inclusive. Confirmation If you are not yet confirmed and would like to take this next step of faith, please give your name to Gill in the Church Office. Confirmation Talks (nothing scary!) will take place in the autumn, and the Bishop will be presiding at a deanery confirmation at Holy Trinity on Thursday November 10th. InSpire Youth Clubs From Friday 16th September, we will run one Club for school years 5, 6, & 7, from 18.45 to 20.00 and, separately, another Club for school years 8+ from 20.15 to 21.30. We await news from the management at Warden Park Academy as to whether we will be able to continue the Wednesday After School Club from September. Please pray for these areas of our work with young people. Michael for Mayor On Saturday 17th September, the Tudor Hall in the Old School will become the 'Star of Cuckfield', venue for an "Anglo-Cornish-Indian" evening, all in support of Michael's charity-fundraising campaign to become the next Mayor of Cuckfield! Tickets £20 include a welcome drink, supper, and entertainment. Calling All Singers Join our professional vocal workshop on the afternoon of Saturday 24th September, working toward a choral performance of Haydn's Mass in D Minor (the 'Nelson' Mass) in the evening. Full details and sign-up sheet available here.
Today we pray for St. Wilfrid’s Hospice & Chestnut House, all users of the Old School, young people who live away from home and all who live in Tylers Green. (To see all prayer requests, click on Welcome/Prayers at the top)

Thought for the Month
"Life is not hurrying
on to a receding future, nor hankering after
an imagined past. It is the turning
aside like Moses to the miracle
of the lit bush, to a brightness
that seemed as transitory in your youth
once, but is the eternity that awaits you." from R.S. Thomas, 'The Bright Field'
