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.

Join us as we welcome our new Vicar, Revd Michael Maine, as he begins his ministry among us. His induction service will be on Thursday 26th February at 7.30pm, and is likely to be very well-attended, so we encourage arriving early!
[The scroll of scripture] was discussed but not believed; it was copied but not obeyed … He opened the book … And he closed the book … And he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:16-21).
Jesus unsealed the scroll by revealing its present meaning, his inaugurating leadership … revealing the word of God so that it was understood personally and immediately.
