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.

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.
