If we are fortunate enough to raise more than we actually need, that money will be used to support our church.


Through much of December and over Christmas we plan to ‘light up Winchelsea’. 

50 households have already promised to create a festive window to cheer us up during these challenging times.

However, we want to do more than that, our church has some of the finest stained-glass windows in the country. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they and the church were also lit throughout the festive season? 1603551601_visit_stt_glass2-2.jpg

To light each of the nine windows and flood the outside of the church with light would be a truly remarkable sight and something we could all enjoy. 

We have found a specialist company to do the work, but it is going to cost some money, quite a lot of money in fact. We need to raise almost £1,000, so we are asking everyone who can, to help out. £75 would help light a stained-glass window, £45, would light one side of the church and £10 would help with the cabling.

We’ve got just a few weeks to raise the money so please donate whatever you can afford to light up Winchelsea! 

And if we are fortunate enough to raise more than we actually need, that money will be used to support our church.

The interior of the church was transformed after the Great War by the insertion of some of the finest stained glass of the modern era – a complete set of windows by Scottish artist Douglas Strachan.  These were dedicated in 1933 by the Archbishop of Canterbury in a service broadcast to the nation by the BBC.
