WELCOME - SEPTEMBER 2018
Welcome to our website, which is updated every month.
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.

Above: Revd Pauline Lucas. The licensing and induction of Pauline as our Vicar takes place on Wednesday 19th September at 7.30 pm at Kirdford church. (Pauline has till now been licensed as Priest-in-Charge.) This re-instates the post of incumbent (Vicar) in our parish, which has been suspended since 2007.
The Bishop of Horsham, the Right Revd Mark Sowerby, and the Archdeacon, the Venerable Fiona Windsor, will be officiating. All are warmly invited and encouraged to come to this service. Light refreshments will be served in the church afterwards.
