The original S Philip’s Church was built in 1905 on land donated by the Eighth Duke of Devonshire, to serve the housing estates being built in the area.

A century later S Philip’s has changed. The congregation decided that the old building was too large and too expensive to serve modern needs. Most of the site has been leased to James Butcher Housing Association, to provide affordable housing for young families and single people.

The new building has almost been entirely given over to various groups and organisations – as part of our outreach and service within the local community – though the parish reserves the right to use the Hall for services on an occasional basis.

S Philip’s became part of the Parish of Christ Church, Eastbourne on 1 January 2009, where worship is now concentrated. All the details are on our main church website:
