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.

We are pleased to be supplied by Holyart
“Surely, this is the house of God.”
“So peaceful, tranquil and a haven for inner peace; the windows are very beautiful and I really love your church.”
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.”
“Baptised here in 1946; still as beautiful.”
“Dad showed me where he sat as a choirboy (1930-24) – amazing.”
“At last, I have found a church using the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.”
“Thank you, God, for such a peaceful and beautiful church in which to spend time in your presence”
“Thank you for being open an allowing us to enjoy God’s house.”
