Welcome to Holy Trinity here in our beautiful Sussex village of Cuckfield. Our Church has been a centre of Christian worship since the 11th century but is as vibrant today as it has ever been. Our mission is to make Christ known both in our worship and in our witness in the community. Following the retirement of our previous vicar, the Revd Canon Nicholas Wetherall, the parish is in vacancy, although fortunately we continue to be served by our curate, the Revd Sandra Hall.
It was announced on Sunday 23rd November that the Rev Michael Maine is to be the next vicar of Holy Trinity, Cuckfield. Michael is a Cornishman by birth, with a long career as a choral scholar, organist, teacher, and Director of Music before his ordination in 2011. Michael has served his curacy at St Mary the Virgin, Willingdon, where he led the ministry team during the year-long vacancy following the departure of the Incumbent. Unmarried, Michael has the company of his dog Archie on his walks on the downs. It is expected that Michael will be inducted on Thursday 26th February 2015.

Christmas Tree Festival
Our popular annual Christmas Tree Festival returns to Holy Trinity from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th December 2014. Since 2003, the festival has raised over £44,300 for charity. This year’s partner charity is the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance. Please come to see the 79 decorated trees and hear the live music which will fill our beautiful church. Light refreshments will be available in the Old School throughout the weekend, which will conclude with a special carol service on Sunday at 6pm. Admission is £4 (under 16s free).
We cannot bring the dead back to life, but we can bring their memory back to life and ensure they are not forgotten. We can undertake in our lives to do what they were so cruelly prevented from doing in theirs.
The Heart of
Since completion last year of its first internal reordering for 150 years, the Church has been blessed with more and more people coming in through its doors: more worshippers from the local community and many more visitors.
Just as it has been for nearly 1,000 years, Holy Trinity continues always "to be there" as the spiritual and social heart of the community of Cuckfield. If you haven't yet visited us, please do come and be assured of a warm welcome.
