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….
“Thank you for keeping this lovely little gem open.”
“I first came to this church in wartime with my grandmother; am so glad it is still here. I loved Lewes.”
“A lovely church, thank you for having it open: it helped at a time of trial and challenge.”
Thank you for providing a resting place between travels; and to St Thomas for his protection, and the ‘powers that be’ for remaining open.
“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.”
“Thank you for keeping this church open. I found myself moved by a sense of tradition. Jesus is alive and I pray that those who visit here will sense His love for them.”
“Baptised here in 1946; still as beautiful.”
“Always a sanctuary and a haven for me.”
“As beautiful as the sound of silence.”
