The Right Reverend Mark Sowerby, Bishop of Horsham and

The Reverend Canon David Tickner


St Leonards welcomes our new Priest In Charge!

On Sunday 15th December the licensing of The Reverend  Canon David Tickner was carried out by the Right Reverend Mark Sowerby, Bishop of Horsham bringing to and end an almost two-year interregnum.

Canon David joins us from  his former parish of Heysham in Lancashire and he and his wife, Janet are warmly welcomed to the parish and to Sussex.

Canon David has many links with Sussex so we hope he very soon feels at home!

The congregation also sends it's heartfelt thanks to our Churchwardens who have worked so very hard during the interregnum to keep the Church open and  ensuring that regular services have taken place.
