Part of the Anglican church network in Haywards Heath, this attractive building in New England Road, was made possible by the generosity of Miss Mary Otter. It opened on August 15th 1882 in an iron mission room which was still in use next to the present church as a Sunday School and parish room until it was destroyed by fire in 1979. A new hall was erected on the site in 1983.
The iron building became too small, and was enlarged in 1886 and opened on the 2nd February on the Festival of The Presentation of Christ in the Temple, from where the church gets its dedication.
In 1897 the present red brick building was erected, again at the cost of Miss Otter and opened in August of that year.
A feature of this church is the apsidal chancel, lit by three lancet windows. The memorial to Miss Otter is an inscribed plaque, who was a grand daughter of a former Bishop of Chichester.
