St Mary's Church

Balcombe School and St Mary's Church are closely associated and our relationship is developed with pupils in a number of ways;

  • through regular worship in the school led by the Rector once every two or three weeks
  • attendance and preparation of special services e.g. Harvest, Christingle/Carol Service, Easter and leavers
  • children visiting the Church to learn about places of worship
  • the Church offers a Pathfinders club for our pupils
  • Open the Book assemblies, which are run by a team of Christians, mostly from St Mary’s Church, but also ecumenically, from Christ Church, New England Road, Haywards Heath
  • Prayer spaces, both at school and in church

The relationship of the Church is at the heart of the School and supports the School's Christian values and ethos.  The Church community provides support for all members of the school community.
