A brief history of the church

The King’s Church Mid-Sussex, is a vibrant and welcoming church, dedicated to serving our local area. As a church, we span the generations and represent over twenty nationalities, which is incredible considering our small beginnings.

We started as a group of people meeting in someone’s home in the village of Scaynes Hill. From this group, a church was formed in Haywards Heath which has now been established for over 35 years.


In the 1980s this church planted a sister congregation in the town of Burgess Hill. Then, in 2004, the leaders of both churches felt God was calling them to become one church again serving Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and the surrounding villages.

So, in January 2005, The King’s Church Mid-Sussex was formed with a vision to build a strong and vibrant church to serving the region. Although our Sunday meetings and office base are in Burgess Hill we run a range of activities across Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and surrounding villages.
