Jonathan Meyer was welcomed to Winchelsea and Icklesham as our new Rector on Shrove Tuesday 13th February 2018. The institution ceremony took place at St Thomas’ Church on a damp and blustery evening. Jonathan’s family and friends and former parishioners from Oxfordshire joined the congregations of Icklesham, Winchelsea Beach and Winchelsea together with members of the local community in a joyful service led by the Bishop of Chichester. Afterwards, there was a reception at St Thomas’ School with generous catering by Icklesham parish.  The ceremony concluded with the ceremonial ringing of the church bell.  Left to right: Jonathan Meyer; Paul Anderson; Edward Dowler, Archdeacon of Hastings.  Click here for the Winchelsea Parish Website
