The Central Sussex United Area covers an area boundaried by Eastbourne, Crowborough, Haywards Heath and Newhaven.
It consists of churches which are Methodist, URC or a combination of both and some which are also linked with the Anglican and Baptist denominations.
We came together in September 2007 to enable us to pool resources and support each other in our work. The Area’s governing body is the Area Meeting which meets twice a year and at which each of the participating churches is represented.
There are two Co-Leaders (one from each denomination) Rev John Gordon (URC) and Rev Rose Westwood (Meth) and various working groups which organise training events, shared worship and opportunities for consultation about future plans.
The sixteen Ministers meet together regularly for fellowship and planning and we participate in the activities of the wider bodies of which we are part, the Southern Synod of the URC and the South East Methodist District.
We have an Area Office where the bulk of the administration of the Area is based and you could contact Lydia, tel. 01444 450473 there if you have any further questions about the Area and its life or submit an email enquiry on the Welcome Page of this site.
