St Giles Church - Horsted Keynes

Rector`s Page


Dear Friends

There are Sussex day excursions every Saturday this summer to Horsted Keynes village via the Bluebell Railway timed to connect with our 270 Metrobus service.


Trippers from London are acting on publicity in a brochure  commending ‘two local pubs…St Giles Church…900 years old where the former Prime Minister Harold MacMillan is buried… and a young couple …killed on their wedding day…on the railway line…in 1942.’


When did you last go on Bluebell Railway?


This month, with people coming to the village on Bluebell, we villagers have an invitation ourselves to join Bishop Mark of Horsham on Sunday 20th July on the 6pm free train to Kingscote for the annual Songs of Praise service. There’s family fun and tea at our station car park 3.45pm – 5.30pm beforehand to which all are welcome.


With last year’s opening of the northern extension turnover on the Bluebell is well up – and it’s overflowing into the village!


God bless Bluebell and all local hostelries that benefit from tourists drawn to Horsted Keynes!


Yours in Christ

John Twisleton
