Lewes

Visiting Churches and Chapels

Visiting Churches and Chapels in the South Downs (new)

Thursdays 1430-1600 (4 sessions: 19th Apr, 27th Apr, 3rd May, 10th May)

Convener: David Parsons

Please note that the second visit will take place on FRIDAY 27 April

The group will visit places of worship of historical interest, provisionally as follows:

19th April: Lewes, St Anne; St Pancras (RC) and Jireh Chapel (independent Presbyterian)

27th April: Glynde, St Mary, and Ringmer, St Mary

3rd May: Ditchling, St Margaret, and Old Meeting (Quaker); Clayton, St John the Baptist

10th May: Alfriston, St Andrew, and Old Chapel (Congregational); Berwick, St Michael and All Angels

It is suggested that participants take lunch at a pub (to be arranged) near the first-named venue, taking advantage of any parking space available.

Apart from the first meeting, which will finish in Lewes itself, the visits will conclude at the last-name place of worship on each occasion at 4.00pm, so travelling time back to Lewes needs to be added in. An introduction to the course will be given in St Anne’s church, where the initial meeting will take place. It is hoped to make the visits on the dates indicated above, but we need to allow for some flexibility in the case of funerals or other unforeseen events taking place in the churches concerned.

Transport will be by members’ own vehicles; in view of the limited parking space available at some of the venues, e.g. Clayton, car-sharing is highly recommended.

Those attending are asked to make a contribution to the places of worship visited.

Maximum group size: 15
