Road Closure for the annual bike ride
The London to Brighton bike ride is on Sunday 19 June. Throughout most of the day, Lindfield High Street will be closed to North-bound traffic. Please plan your route to church accordingly and be careful when crossing the road.
As we know, parking on a Sunday morning is not always easy especially between the two morning services. If you are able, please can we encourage you to park a little further away from the church, to enable those who are less mobile or visiting for the first time to find a space in the church car park. There are often spaces available on the High Street, at the park on Hickmans Lane and at the Bent Arms pub. Please don't be put off by the signs, Howard the landlord is very happy for those attending church to park there until 12noon.
