WELCOME

 St Nicolas Parish Church and St Wilfrid’s chapel-of-ease Pevensey

Appointment of Interim Vicar confirmed

We are delighted to announce that the appointment of Father Tony Windross has now been confirmed.  Father Tony took up his ministry to our parish on Tuesday March 13th 2018, when he was licenced to the parish by our diocesan Bishop, Martin.
Father Tony will be a part-time vicar of Pevensey, and hopes that our wonderful team of retired clergy will continue to be involved in the parish ministry.  Below is Father Tony’s letter of  introduction to his future parishioners in Pevensey…….please read on….
“I was born in Margate, but grew up in Eastbourne. After leaving school I read economics and geography at Cambridge – and whilst there met and married Pat.
We moved to Birmingham to study the post-graduate certificate of education – and I then taught in Eastbourne for 24 years, during which time our family steadily grew, with the arrival of four sons: Peter, David, Andrew and Paul. 
I was fortunate to have Nicholas Reade as my ordination training incumbent, and Tony Christian as my local tutor. I was ordained in 1993, and was based at St Mary’s Eastbourne as a non-stipendiary minister, before moving in 1997 to East Grinstead as a full-time curate. After two years, we moved to Sheringham in North Norfolk, where I was the vicar for nine years, before going in 2008 to Hythe in Kent, where I was vicar for six years. Wanting a fresh challenge, we then experienced rural ministry in Cornwall, where I’ve had responsibility for 8 churches over the last three years, combining this with being rural dean.
Pat and I are very excited about this new adventure. We love the area, and look forward to getting to know the parish and people of Pevensey.”

Our musical summer continues with a FREE organ recital by John Collins.  It is a great privilege to welcome this distinguished return visitor who promises another very interesting programme of less well known European and South American organ music.    Our lunchtime music at St Nicolas Pevensey will include works by Frescobaldi, Marsh, Storace and Pachelbel.

Please bring your own lunch.  Tea, coffee and wine will be available from 12.45.  The concert will run from 1pm – 2pm.   A retiring collection will be made for the Restoration fund of St Nicolas Pevensey.
