Crowborough, Herons Ghyll & Uckfield
We are Parish of Crowborough and a part of Lewes Deanery, creating a cluster of three local church communities: Crowborough, Heron’s Ghyll and Uckfield, Burwash with Heathfield, Mayfield and Wadhurst, served by three priests, three deacons, with one deacon in training.
The mission of our Community is to obey the command of our Lord, Jesus Christ, to bring the joy of the Gospel to all whom we encounter, whether already baptised or not. Every decision made in our parish and all our activities should be guided by this command.
in our Parish
‘Let us keep the flame of faith alive through prayer and the sacraments.’
God, understanding our human nature, gives the Church the gift of the sacraments, visible signs of invisible graces. The sacraments manifest God’s love for us in tangible ways that we can experience. Through the sacraments he draws close to us. All sacraments are an encounter with Him.
