The purpose of the Church Recorders of local churches is to promote recognition and preservation of the rich artistic heritage in places of worship by recording the contents of churches. Participating churches are presented with an illustrated book detailing each item and its history.

The Arts Society Mid Sussex Church Recording Group has recently supplied a supplementary addition to a previously submitted Record for Wivelsfield Church.

The Record for Staplefield Church is almost complete and printing has commenced. This comprises nine sections to make up a full record. On completion copies of this record will be made available to the Church, the local County Records office, the V&A, Historic England & the Church Care Library together with The Arts Society.

The group has produced a Church Trail for Wivelsfield Church which is in operation within the church.

The group has received permission to produce another Church Trail, this time for Scaynes Hill. work is at present ongoing.

It is pleasing to note that The Trail of Discovery for Holy Trinity, Cuckfield has now been completed. This is the culmination of many hours of focussed work and should soon be available in the church.
