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.
We welcomed the New Choral Singers from the Netherlands to the Sung Mass
