British Summer Time begins on Sunday 29th March

Dear Friends,

This week we have seen the tightening of restrictions on our lives in the “lockdown” where all must isolate and keep safe. The church building is now closed to everyone – even the Vicar – so we are challenged to find new ways of being the church within our communities.

Some of our members are key workers: NHS staff, teachers, engineers, drivers and others who are volunteering themselves for the essential tasks of keeping things going in the face of this pandemic. Please pray for them as they put their lives at risk every day.

Annual Parish Meeting and Elections

The meeting on 19th April is obviously postponed and the Diocese has told us that we can hold it at any time up to 31stOctober this year. This means in effect that Churchwardens, Deanery Synod and PCC Members will remain in post until the meeting takes place. Any essential PCC business will be conducted where necessary by telephone or email, as allowed by Church Representation Rules. All other business will have to wait until we can meet in person.


The Parish Office is also closed so please do not leave post or other communications there. The phone line has a message telling everyone to call the Vicarage number: 01342 323307 or send a message by email:

If you need urgent help, please call.


East Grinstead Emergency Action Group

If you, or anyone you know is elderly, vulnerable and self-isolating, 

help with food and supplies is available from this group.

Please call 01342 323636 and select Option 1.

The service is available Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4pm.
