Heathfield Benefice

The Church of England in Your Community


Reverend Mitch


Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Heathfield Benefice website. We are ‘The Church of England in Your Community’, covering the town of Heathfield and the neighbouring villages of Old Heathfield and Broad Oak. We have three buildings in our parish, but we are one Church family. As such, we seek to respond to God’s love by walking alongside one another in all aspects of life’s journey: In life | In love | In loss. 


We hope you find our website useful, whether you’re new to the area, interested in exploring your faith, or have an important life event such as a child to be baptised, a wedding to be planned, or a funeral for a loved one.


Reverend Christian Mitchell (known as Rev'd Mitch), Vicar

Prayer and Reflection

There are a number of regular opportunities available to join with small groups  for a time of prayer and reflection.


Mid-week morning reflections

On Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9am we share a short time of prayer and reflection live on the Heathfield Benefice Facebook page led by Rev'd Mitch and Rev'd Torhild. Everyone is welcome to join us live, and the videos of each reflection are uploaded to the website shortly afterwards to be viewed at any time.

Saturday Parish Prayers

Each Saturday at 9am a group of regular parishioners meet on zoom for a time of prayer. Prayers are led by different members of the group and offer a quiet and reflective time to join together to pray on both local and wider subjects. 


Everyone is welcome to join. If you would like to find out more, please contact us.

Making a donation

Heathfield Benefice has an exciting vision for growth, both in bringing more people to know God’s love for them, and responding to that love through service within our local community. We simply could not fulfil that vision without the generosity of so many people who provide their time, talents and financial support to the life and ministry of the Benefice.  


Regular giving helps us to plan our mission and ministry. If you would like to support our church by giving regularly or making a one-off donation you can find the different ways to do this here.
