About Us

There are three churches in the Beacon Parish, St Margaret's, Ditchling; St Martin's, Westmeston and Streat Church. The three churches became one Parish in October 2007.  The Beacon Parish is in the Deanery of Hurst, the Archdeaconry of Horsham and the Diocese of Chichester.

Father David Wallis is the Vicar of the three churches of the Beacon Parish.


We are lucky enough to also have a Reader, Colyeen Blanchard who also officiates at some services.

Our Youth Worker is Gary Pickett. Gary leads our YODAH group as well as overseeing Little Beacons and Junior Church.


YODAH is a joint venture with the Parish of Clayton with Keymer. Gary joined us in March 2017 and is really enjoying building our youth programmes.
