Rev Ben

New Rector of Lewes appointed

Today we announced that the Lord Chancellor has approved the appointment of the Revd Ben Brown as the next Rector of the benefice of Lewes St Anne, St Michael and St Thomas at Cliffe with All Saints.

Ben is currently Team Vicar in the Merstham and Gatton Team Ministry in the Diocese of Southwark. He trained as an actor and worked in children’s theatre and in publishing before studying for the priesthood at Westcott House, Cambridge. He loves art, theatre, music and reading and has a particular interest in Christian spirituality.

He is married to Rachael, who is a sculptor and art therapist, and they have two daughters – Rowan (16) and Martha (9). We look forward to welcoming Ben and his family to Lewes.

We do not as yet have a date for his induction, but we will let you know as soon as we hear more.
