North aisle added by Garret of Hove in 1912-13. Scaynes Hill was made a parish in 1930, and to celebrate its diamond jubilee a large tapestry was created, which is mounted in three sections at the east end of the church. The design of this tapestry is based around the Gospel of St John. There is also a sequence of paintings illustrating events in the story of the life of St Augustine of Canterbury.
