St John's, Pevensey Road
Where do we start?! We are a growing and inclusive church family, signed up to "One Body One Faith". We are working hard to increase our "green" credentials, as a registered "Eco Church". We are a welcoming, friendly, Anglo-Catholic congregation. Our main Sunday service has traditionally been led musically by a robed choir, though in the current Covid-19 situation we unfortunately cannot enjoy this privilege. We are lucky to be able to meet in a wonderful Grade II* listed building, with acoustics described as rivalling those of the best opera houses, and windows described as excellent examples of twentieth century glass. And we have good heating, loos, baby-changing facilities, wheelchair-friendly access and sound/loop system! Come up and see us sometime... we think you'll want to stay!
