St Wilfrid’s Parish has two churches. St Wilfrid’s Church is the historic parish church of Haywards Heath, which was opened in 1865; the Presentation Church was opened in 1897. All are welcome to our services and activities.
St Wilfrid’s Church: 28 August 2016 - Trinity 14
Presentation Church: 28 August 2016 - Trinity 14
During term time at St Wilfrid’s we run Sunday School alongside our 9.30am Eucharist, on the second and fourth Sundays only. On the third Sunday of every month we offer a Family Worship service at 10.30am for families and children; this lasts less than half an hour, followed by refreshments.
Also during term time we run a Toddlers Service on Tuesdays at 2.00pm. This resumes in September.
WHAT'S ON IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER?
Sunday 28 August 2016 is Trinity 14.
The Sunday Link for 28 August has details of our forthcoming services and other events, including a Women's Fellowship meeting on Thursday 1 September and a talk in the Centenary Hall, after the 9.30am Eucharist service at St Wilfrid's on Sunday 4 September, by Ander Garraway about his recent trip to China. Sunday Link also offers you an invitation to sign up for a new course starting soon, Exploring Christianity. On the Parish Diary, News page you will find the latest edition of the Parish Diary for 2016 and 2017 (just updated on 26 August). Please note that Coffee Stop and the Toddlers Service (both on Tuesdays) will resume in September, and that the Parish Office will be CLOSED from 30 August to 6 September inclusive.

HAYWARDS HEATH FOOD BANKOur Food Bank in Sussex Road is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area. We don't think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That's why our Food Bank provides three days' nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to it in crisis. It is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
For a calendar of events about our Food Bank visit the Food Bank website.
FAMILY SUPPORT WORK (FSW)FSW - the Chichester Diocesan Association for Family Support Work - not only welcomes donations in cash or online; it also invites you to volunteer for a range of activities. Our parish regularly and gladly supports FSW's fundraising efforts.
For a calendar of events and information about FSW
visit the FSW website.
Leaflets about our programme are at the back of St Wilfrid’s Church, which is usually open Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm.
You may notice our site’s colour changing occasionally. This reflects the seasons of the church year from Advent (just before Christmas) to Trinity (May to November). We now have the bright Easter colours, which will remain until Trinity Sunday.
