Trinity Church Sissinghurst

The United Benefice of Sissinghurst with Frittenden

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby preached at Trinity Sissinghurst and St Mary's Frittenden.

We had the most remarkable surprise on Sunday 21st November, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby came to preach and administer Holy Communion at Trinity Church Sissinghurst at our traditional 8.30am service. We were only given notice a few days beforehand and his explicit wish was to see a normal parish service with the normal congregation, so there was no advance publicity.

He gave a most inspiring sermon on “Truth”. You can download the Sissinghurst service here. We are enormously grateful to Justin for coming to see us. Pictured with Archbishop Justin is our Rev Pete Deaves who jointly led the service,

He also visited and preached afterwards at our sister benefice church St Mary's Frittenden at their 10.00am service.

Trusting God in a time of uncertainty?

Welcome to Trinity Church, Sissinghurst, Kent, UK.

Trinity Church is in the parish of Sissinghurst, Kent. It stands on the main street running through the village. Sissinghurst is world famous for The National Trust's Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens, the former home and estate of Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson.

Services are in church and are also recorded. There is a Service at Trinity Sissinghurst every Sunday, see schedule above. We have Sunday Club for youngsters. We have a regular Families Together event outside of the main services. There are two regular home Bible Study Groups, through most of the year. Our Rector, Pete Deaves started with us in February 2020. Pete is married to Claire and they have three children, Phoebe, Jemimah and Mollie.

If you're not currently a member of our church - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services, we'd be delighted to see you and you'll be certain of a friendly welcome. Feel free to contact our Rector or one of our Church Wardens.

We seek to be a place where: God is worshiped, Jesus Christ is proclaimed and the community is served.
