Our Vicar Kevin Mepham will be retiring at the end of October.  There will be a Benefice Service at St. John the Baptist Church, Sedlescombe on Sunday 31st October at 10.30a.m followed by our final farewell to Kevin with refreshments.  The Church Wardens ask that you join with them to say thank you and a fond farewell to Kevin with all best wishes on a well deserved retirement.

A Memorial Service is being held on Sunday 24th October at 4.00p.m. Followed by "Enhanced' Refreshments.

A Carol Service will be held on 12th December at 10.30a.m.

Our Church Warden Jeffrey Bridges has worked hard to source celebrants for all the services at Whatlington Church in the coming months, so the pattern of services will be maintained.

If you have need of a priest during the interregnum, please approach a church warden in the first instance.     

It is hoped the Pageant will be staged outside on 13th December at 3.30p.m.   If you have any friends or family in the 5-12 year old group who would be willing to dress up and take part  please contact Yyonne Underhill on [email protected]   Smaller children obviously will be welcome but they usually stay with their parents

Village church, St Mary Magdalene, is Church of England and dates back to around 1200AD and was restored by the Victorians in 1862..

The church is full of history and has some stunning architecture and contents - the stain glass window behind the alter is a beautiful sight, well worth visiting.

Following the fire on the 15th July 2010, repairs and refurbishments were carried out and there is now a kitchen and toilet facilities. The church reopened on November 2013.
