WELCOME - DECEMBER 2019 AND JANUARY 2020
Welcome to our website, which is normally updated each month. (Note that there will be no update at the beginning of January; December's update includes January as well.)
Our Church of England parish falls within the Diocese of Chichester and covers a wide area, encompassing the three villages of Kirdford, Plaistow & Ifold in West Sussex. For this reason we have two churches (in Kirdford and Plaistow), centres of worship and symbols of the spiritual life of the parish for many centuries.
All are welcome to join our Sunday and mid-week worship – please click on “services & events” above for a list of this month's services. Both church buildings are also open during the day for visitors and private prayer. Kirdford church (St John the Baptist) is an impressive stone-built medieval church with features from Norman times and four Kempe stained glass windows. Its bell tower houses six bells that are rung regularly.
Plaistow church (Holy Trinity) is a Victorian gem – a stone-built church with two Kempe stained glass windows.

As usual we are holding several special services this Christmas at both of our churches (at Plaistow and Kirdford).
