Christ Church is the Church of England parish serving all the people of central St Leonards. Our main Sunday celebration is the Parish Mass at 10:15am. Our congregation is open and diverse in terms of age and background. The parish welcomes children and young families; there are several groups connected with the parish including Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts, which meet in the Church Hall.  Our building is imposing, and has been listed 2*; our liturgy is modern catholic with traditional ceremonial. The church has a small choir of adult voices and a stipendiary director of music, and we actively encourage outside groups, musicians and orchestras to use the church, which has a fine acoustic. Our 1882 Holdich organ was rebuilt by Willis in 1929 as a three-manual.  There are close links with Christ Church Primary School which is situated near the church.
