St John’s Church is the parish church of Meads, Eastbourne.  

The Revd Giles Carpenter and everyone at St John's offers a warm welcome to all, in the context of an open evangelical tradition. Our styles of worship reflect the diversity of the church family, which includes a lively group of young families and children. We encourage each other to grow in our relationship and partnership with God as we explore the Bible, pray together and serve our local community. We aim to be a place where something of the holiness and love of God is experienced.
