Lights of Love

The annual Lights of Love service will take place at 3.00pm. at St. Thomas’s Church in Winchelsea on Sunday 2nd December 2018. The service is organised by St. Michael’s Hospice, St. Leonard’s on Sea and is an opportunity to dedicate a star and remember a loved one. You do not have to have had a connection with the hospice and all are welcome to take part or attend this moving service. Further details about dedicating a star are available from St. Michael’s Hospice, 25 Upper Maze Hill, St. Leonard’s on Sea, East Sussex, TN38 0LB, email

Winchelsea Church “Town” Christmas Card

Shirley Meyer, a local artist and art teacher, who runs courses has produced the “Town” Christmas card, which is being sold for church funds. She has produced this image as a lino cut. This year’s run of 1,500 has almost sold out but she hopes to organise a bigger print run in good time for next year.


Friends and neighbours in Winchelsea, Winchelsea Beach and Icklesham are warmly invited to the Service at which the Revd Jonathan Meyer takes up the post of Rector.

The Service will be held at St Thomas’, Winchelsea at 7.30pm on Tuesday 13th February 2018. It will be conducted by the Rt Revd Dr Martin Warner, Bishop of Chichester and will include a Eucharist.

You are equally invited to the reception that will take place at St Thomas’ Primary School in Friars Road, Winchelsea after the Service.  Friars Road isn’t well lit so a torch would be a good idea.

Ash Wednesday follows, on 14th, and Jonathan will lead an Ash Wednesday Eucharist with Imposition of Ashes at 11am at Icklesham Church.  This is a joint Service for all three churches
