St Michael and All Angels church in Berwick, East Sussex is most well-known for its extensive 20th Century paintings by Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and Quentin Bell, which were commissioned during the Second World War by Bishop Bell (see Bloomsbury in Berwick).
This ancient parish church lies in the beautiful South Downs National Park with spectacular views of the escarpment of the Downs to the south
1: to offer the church and its natural surroundings as a spiritual sanctuary and place of retreat, creativity and reflection.
2: to promote the importance of the relationship between contemporary artists and the life of church.
In Spring 2019 the church was awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant providing 63% of the cost of restoring and conserving the paintings in Berwick Church. We still need to raise more funds to complete this urgent and challenging project. Please make a donation. For more information see 'Saving Berwick'
