Welcome to our website for Holy Cross Church with St Saviours in Uckfield together with St Michael’s at Little Horsted and St Margaret’s at Isfield.
Our Churches were formally linked in the 1970’s and work together in faith and fellowship. Having visited our site we hope that you will be encouraged and inspired by what you see here and that you too will want to be part of the Mission of Christ’s Church.
Well I wasn’t expecting that! She went on to explain that her Christology, (i.e. her understanding of the person of Jesus and the extent to which he was fully human and fully divine) had been seriously challenged, to the point that it had made her ask some fundamental questions about her own vocation. Fortunately, she had been able to resolve this, and was looking forward with eagerness to her forthcoming ordination in the summer.
Incredibly six thousand four hundred people visited the Eighth Festival of Christmas Trees at Holy Cross Church. This Festival retains the traditional methods of tree decorating, but the Sponsors are encouraged to be creative and innovative, and this year they certainly did that with many actually hand crafting their decorations.This year’s Festival photographs can be viewed in the website’s photo gallery. The eighty-two trees displayed had been sponsored by a cross section of people, businesses, and associations from within the local community. There were representations from seven local Primary Schools, the Community College, Adult Education College, local businesses, voluntary organisations, community support groups, sport clubs, and individual families.
Church Clock Restored – 10th November 2011.
|4th Jul 2011||
Five months after the Clock was removed (on the 4th July 2011) for cleaning and overhauling, the mechanism was reinstated, and together with the repainted, and re-gilded, clock faces the town has its landmark timepiece back in action.

The clock was made in 1883 and although on the clock’s ‘setting dial’ it bears the name of a local man and the word Uckfield, it was, in fact, made by Thwaites and Reed of Clerkenwell in London. It is typical of their design at that time and very similar to their clock in the Knightsbridge Barracks in London. The clock features dials that are unusually placed, being on the out-built mountings on the four sides of the spire. Likewise the clock itself is also unusually mounted because it is above the bell-frame in the belfry and on a level with the base of the spire.
