A TRADITIONAL ANGLICAN CHURCH
USING THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER
St Thomas à Becket is an ancient and peaceful church, situated at the end of Cliffe High Street in the East Sussex county town of Lewes.
Apart from daily services, according to the Book of Common Prayer, the friendly congregation also offer a range of social activities in the neighbouring Cliffe Hall – see News & Events.

Many of our visitors, often from far and wide, leave us heartfelt comments which we share with you….
“I am a direct male descendent of Marjory and James Morris, two of the  Sussex Martyrs burnt at the stake in Lewes. I had to visit.”
“A beautiful, calm place to gather strength.”
“O how amiable are thy dwellings; thou Lord of hosts!”, Ps 84 v1
“As beautiful as the sound of silence.”
“A lovely church, thank you for having it open: it helped at a time of trial and challenge.”
“I first came to this church in wartime with my grandmother; am so glad it is still here. I loved Lewes.”

“Nice to see the church open for visitors – somewhere to retreat to; a peaceful place with a deep sense of history.”
