Welcome to the parish church of St Michael in Lewes which has been a place of worship and prayer for 800 years. You are invited to look round the church and churchyard which are normally open for prayer and quiet reflection from c10.00am to c5.00pm on Mondays to Saturdays.
You are also welcome to join us for Mass on Sundays and on some weekdays (for current times see Worship). Concerts and other events are held regularly (see Music and News). Click here for the Event Calendar
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 to make a donation it will help us to maintain this historic building for future generations.

To provide a little solace in these stressful times, we have added a recording of the organ recital by Nicholas Houghton on Sunday 1st March – one in our series of First Sunday Recitals, which will restart when current restrictions are lifted. There is also a recording of an earlier recital on the Music page. Many thanks to Terry Donoghue for the recordings.
