Crowhurst Church has a dramatic location astride the side of a hill with its magnificent tower dominating the skyline. There has been a church on the site for at least a thousand years with the earliest documented reference to Crowhurst going back to 772AD. We are very proud of our history, which includes a connection with King Harold, the last Saxon king.
We continue to be an important part of village life today. Over recent years we have had packed commemorations for events ranging from the bi-centenary of Jane Austen to the centenary of the 1918 Armistice. We serve the wider village through a popular Friday coffee shop, which offers a highly appreciated meeting place and a wide variety of other social events. The wider world is supported by charitable giving. For example we recently funded sewing machines for a college in Papua New Guinea.
