Heathfield Benefice

The Church of England in Your Community


Reverend Mitch Welcome to our 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 and two parishes, 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, Vicar


Welcome and congratulations to our new curate Torhild

Below are a few photos from her ordination service which took place at Chichester Cathedral on Saturday 29th June joined by her family, Revd Mitch and a number of our Benefice congregation. We are looking forward to getting to know Torhild as she settles in to life in her new role. Read more.
