Welcome to the parishes website for the Catholic communities in Uckfield and Heron’s Ghyll. We are part of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton and our Bishop is Richard Moth who is the Fifth Bishop of the Diocese.
The parishes are made up of the thriving town of Uckfield and many of the smaller villages surrounding it. They comprise some of the most beautiful countryside in East Sussex. The church in Uckfield is dedicated to Our Lady Immaculate & St Philip Neri and is located next door to our parish primary school, St Philip’s.
The historic church of St John the Evangelist is in a delightful setting, close to the Ashdown Forest and easily accessible off the main road from Uckfield to Crowborough.
Our parish communities are served by many lay people who are fully invoved in the life of the parishes.
Our Parish Priest is Fr Ian Vane, who lives in Uckfield and he is aided by our deacons, The Rev’d David Tutt and The Rev’d Ken Fowler.
Whether you are new to the area or just passing through, we know that you will find a warm welcome as we gather to celebrate our Catholic faith and serve the communities in which we live in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ.
