Welcome to the parish church of St Michael in Lewes in the Diocese of Chichester which has been a place of worship and prayer for over 800 years. We are a small, friendly and inclusive town-centre congregation and you would be most welcome to join us. We also host regular concerts and other events, details of which can be found here at Music.

The Eucharist, celebrated in the Anglo-Catholic tradition each Sunday at 10.30am, supported by our newly restored organ, is at the centre of our life. Wheelchair access is possible. Ask us and we can provide a ramp for the single step.

The Eucharist is also celebrated on Thursdays at 10 am, Night Prayer (Compline) is regularly sung, and there is a meditation group (please refer to Resources). You can find details of forthcoming feasts and special services under Services.

St Michael’s is the only remaining church within the walls of the ancient county town of Lewes. It is of historic and architectural interest and has been decorated over the centuries to inspire and uplift all those who visit. It has spectacular views of the castle from the churchyard.

If you would like us to accompany you in your prayer and include an intercession at one of our services, please use the Contact page. You can also use this page to contact a priest.
