We are a local group that raises funds for four overseas charities.


Every pound raised is distributed to each of the four charities.

£2 can feed a woman in the care of Freedom from Fistula for a full day, £10 will provide antibiotics treatment to protect fifty families from river blindness and £20 will provide breakfast for the whole Tanzanear School for the Deaf.


A little goes a long way.


the Overseas charity of

St. George’s, Brede;  St. Mary’s, Udimore; All Saints, Beckley and

St. Peter and St. Paul, Peasmarsh

Messy Church is held once a month in the Village Hall. Numbers fluctuate as the children progress through school.

We have a welcoming and friendly church community and run a Harvest Supper, Christmas Fayre, Winter Lunch, and Summer Fayre.


Other events in the summer are Ride & Stride, and our Garden Safari. The “Four Charities”, a Joint charity with Brede supports four overseas charities, The Deaf in Tanzania, Papua New Guinea Church Partnership, The Fistula Foundation and Sight Savers.

Charities and Clubs and other groups are generally shared with our neighbours at Brede. Groups such as the Mother's Union, Women's Institute, a Luncheon club, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Brownies are all based there. Details of all events are published in the monthly Parish Magazine which covers the two parishes, Brede and Udimore.

St Mary's Church flower arranging team is happy to welcome anyone, experienced or beginner, to join the regular church flower arranging team. For more information contact Nadia Florence-Marshall HERE.


St Mary's Church dates back to Saxon times. By the 19th century it was in a very poor state, dependant on a small parish of about 300 people and the generosity of individuals. 

The Friends of St Mary's was formed in 1985, concerned mainly with raising funds for the upkeep of the fabric of the church. Over the years we have contributed to repairs and improvements in the church and are extremely grateful to those who have enabled us to do so. 

We welcome anyone who would like to become a Friend and join in with all that this small but vibrant community offers. A yearly subscription of £5 entitles you to vote at the AGM. For more information contact the  Liz Dean HERE


Udimore Parish Council represents local residents and works with the East Sussex County Council and Rother District Council to deliver services to meet local needs and to improve the quality of life in the Parish. Udimore Parish Council is completely separate from the local Parochial Church Council (PCC) which is part of the Church of England and is responsible for St Mary's Church. For more information HERE.


We are a local group which was set up as the overseas outreach for St. George's Brede and St. Mary's Udimore over 20 years ago.  During the last few years the group has raised over £28,000 all of which has been distributed to the charities the group support.


This achievement reflects the wonderful support we have received from local and nearby communities who have come to the various events. 


The charities the group support are:


More information about each charity can be found on the 4CHARITIES website  -


In over 80 countries of the world, more than 4 million Mothers' Union members do all they can - through volunteering, giving and prayer - to support families, to promote marriage and family life, and to reach out within their communities to people who are isolated, in trouble or in need of help.


Building, strengthening, supporting, encouraging and healing relationships lie at the very heart of Mothers' Union.


We're not all mothers - or even all women!  We are a commmunity of people inspired by Christ to bring a humanitarian response to the needs of families around us.


If you want to ....

  • help build a world where dignity, love and respect define relationships,

  • do all you can to eradicate the inequalities brought about by poverety, ignorance of rights and lack of opportunity,

  • meet like-minded people and have fun at the same time

come and join us at one of our monthly meetings.


We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 2.30pm and have a different topic at each meeting.



Here in the benefice with Udimore and Beckley and Peasmarsh. Messy church normally meets on the the First Tuesday of each month in the Udimore Community Hall.

This afternoon get together is for adults and children together in a fun filled Christian community outside Sunday worship. It is described as a way of being church for people who don't do traditional church, for whatever reason.  It is a church for all ages but essentially adults are welcome with a child in tow or vice versa.


In fact this is key to Messy Church - children do not come along alone & adults must bringg a child or young person if they wish to take part.  There are crafts and activites, celebration & a shared meal.


Why not come and join?
