Welcome to
Crowborough, Herons Ghyll & Uckfield
Catholic Community

We are a one Parish 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.

Sacramental preparation

‘Let us keep the flame of faith alive through prayer and the sacraments.’

                Pope Francis

‍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.

We Care About You

In the Catholic Parish of St Mary in Crowborough, Our Lady Immaculate & St Philip Neri, Uckfield & St John the Evangelist, Herons Ghyll we use an online database provided by a company called ChurchSuite - a safe and secure web-based church management system based in the UK that is used by around 2000 churches across the world.

We want to fill the database with the contact details of all households that attend Mass at our church.

Donating to the Parish

Our Parish relies on offertory gifts and donations to meet its many commitments. Contributing regularly helps the Parish to understand the level of income expected to be received and to budget accordingly to cover regular expenses and the costs of scheduled property maintenance.

Our Schools

St Mary’s is a successful Catholic school where we celebrate diversity and warmly welcome families from all faiths and backgrounds. We aim, at all times, to live out our mission to Pray – Learn – Love – Enjoy.
