In the early 20th century Catholics in the parish walked to church at West Grinstead. In 1928 a mass centre was established at Red Oaks south of the parish church, served by the Southwark diocesan travelling mission. A wooden oratory was built nearby in 1932. By 1940 there was a resident priest, and in 1968 Henfield became a separate parish. The brick church of Corpus Christi, again nearby, was opened in 1974.
