About Us

Trinity Church

Trinity Church is the parish church 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.

In line with Government ruling during the Covid-19 crisis all services in church are suspended and the church is closed even for private prayer. This is the first time that churches have been closed by order for over 800 years.

However during normal times Services are held every Sunday morning: All Services start at 11am. There is also an early Holy Communion Service at 8.00am on the second Sunday of the month. There is Sunday School on the second, fourth and occasionally fifth Sundays. There are two regular home Bible Study Groups, one on Thursday mornings and one on alternate Thursday evenings through most of the year. Our Rector is Revd. Pete Deaves who joined us in February 2020.


History

The Church was Built in 1838 and currently serves the Parish.

Sissinghurst is a small village in the Weald of Kent. Originally called Mylkehouse Street, Sissinghurst changed it's name in the 1850s, possibly to avoid association with the smuggling and cockfighting activities of the Hawkhurst Gang. Sissinghurst lies in the Royal Borough of Tunbridge Wells with Cranbrook just 2 miles to the South West.

Accessibility

The Church is wheel chair friendly, has a disabled toilet facility and has a hearing loop system (sometimes called an audio induction loop).

Parking - The Milk House (public house) Car Park can be used for Sunday Morning Services.
