The Christ Church ThinkTank has been in existence for over 10 years. It draws on speakers from all the churches in the Lewes area.  Whether you go to church or not, come whenever the topic interests you. The format is 45 minutes talk and 45 minutes discussion and our average attendance is about 30. All meetings are from 7.30 pm to 9 pm.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 16 January 2019, when Debby Matthews will be speaking on

   Thomas Mantell and the early Lewes Non-Conformists

Debby Matthews has lived in Lewes since 2006 but has worked here since the late 1990s. She currently works in the tourist information centre and in a previous job ran the council for voluntary service in the town. She studied history at the University of Sussex and gained an MA in librarianship from University College London. She gives talks on local history, with a particular interest in Gideon Mantell, the Lewes surgeon and discoverer of the skeleton of Iguanodon, on whom she writes a regular blog online. Thomas Mantell (1750-1807) was Gideon’s father, an influential Lewes citizen and Non-Conformist.
