History
Founded 1881
Dedication All Saints

All Saints Church is the United Reformed Church in Burgess Hill. Originally a Congregational church, it replaced Burgess Hill's first Congregational chapel in Grove Road. It was registered as Junction Road Church.

It is a Classical building with a large portico and columns — an unusual style for such a late construction date (1881).

John Betjeman thought it was the Burgess Hill's only decent piece of architecture.

The exterior was painted in 1986, and the pews were removed in 2001.[1]
