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.
We look forward to welcoming you to this oasis of calm and tranquillity, whether for a visit, meditation, private prayer or to one of our regular services. Full details in our monthly Parish News.

“Baptised here in 1946; still as beautiful.”
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.”
“Nice to see the church open for visitors – somewhere to retreat to; a peaceful place with a deep sense of history.”
“Surely, this is the house of God.”
“Thank you, Lord, for this place of peace for all to enter and reflect. I now feel at peace.”
“The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, is truly present here.”
“Our happiest memories of Lewes are of St Thomas’ and its welcome. A wonderful feeling of continuity and resilience.”
“A wonderful, interesting church; steeped in history.”
