Our Building

Grade II* listed... and thoroughly deserving of this label, even though the present building only dates back to the mid-1900's. Acclaimed stained glass and acoustics. Designed by architect Mr Goodhart-Rendel. Foundation stone laid by the then Duchess of Edinburgh, before she became Queen.

Music and Worship

The church is often used for choral and orchestral concerts, and rehearsals.

Bought from St Catherine's College Chapel, Cambridge, in 1976, and installed in wooden casing designed and constructed by Mr Walter Cruttenden, the then Church Warden. It bears the coat of arms of St Catherine's College and Hastings Borough.

Our robed choir leads the music at our main sung services. Under the directorship of our organist Richard Eldridge, they meet to practice in church on Thursday evenings.

Groups, Courses and Activities

We take part in the annual Snowflake Project, providing overnight accommodation in our church hall one night a week during the winter.

Help for Visitors

We have guide pamphlets to flag up the main features of the church building to visitors.

We are working on opening up more on weekday mornings... at the moment it's usually Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays from 10:00 till 12:00. But watch this space!

Other Features

We make sure we use fairtraded filter coffee for our post-worship refreshments on Sundays.

Our adjacent church hall is available for hire at modest rates to local community groups and individuals. Contact the manager on 07783 588858 or [email protected]
