Church of England Diocese of Chichester Newhaven

About Us

We are a Local Ecumenical Partnership of Anglicans and Methodists and are also fully committed to working together in mission and ministry with the other churches in Newhaven.   

We see our purpose as:  Responding to God; Growing as His family; Sharing His love with others.

St Michael’s is the ancient parish church of Newhaven (or Meeching as the town was originally called).  The church tower and east end were built 1120, and the rest of the building dates from 1860. 

 The spire was re-shingled with cedar wood tiles in 2015. This project was funded by local fundraising and by a £35,000 grant from the Government 'Listed Places of Worship' Roofing fund.
