St John’s is the Church of England parish church of Upper St Leonard's (Hastings) in the Diocese of Chichester.
There’s been a church here since 1865 - although this is our fourth building (finished in 1953).
Our 'style' is 'open Catholic', so the Eucharist (or Mass) is central to what we do. Our main service is the 10.30am parish mass on Sunday mornings, when the church family gathers round the Lord’s table in obedience to Jesus’ command when he said “Do this in remembrance of me...” (Luke 22.19); we are also one of the rare remaining churches that still has a robed choir that both leads our sung worship and strives to remind us of the greatness of English church music. Our Sunday School - the FROGs - meets during the first half of the service for the younger worshipper!
We aim to be open and welcoming to all, as you'll find out if you join us after a service for some ( fairly traded ) tea or coffee. We also try and take our environmental responsibility seriously and we’ve produced a green policy for St John’s. Our facilities include an amplification system, hearing loop, large print material and flat access.
There’s quite a bit going on and the atmosphere is very difficult to describe - it’s much easier to experience, so why not join us one Sunday?
See you soon!
