We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded “Dementia Friendly Church” status by Dementia Friends and also that we are recognised officially now  as an “Assistance Dog Welcome” Church by Assistance Dogs UK. We have two fully trained “Dementia Friends”, Charmaine Hill and David Jones. David, through his work with Therapy Dogs, is fully qualified to support Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs, Medical Detection Dogs and Canine Partners for Disabled.

The site changes frequently as news breaks, events are announced and things happen, so please come back and see what has changed, been added and updated. The newsletters, from November 2011 to date, are being reformatted and relocated to give better accessibility. The newsletter for September 2019 is here.

The Parish has made real progress in the “Adopt-a-Street” Initiative for Hastings and St. Leonard’s. We have the third highest number of adoptions, after King’s Church and His Place, with more to come. There is a new section here where you may read a brief description and sign up to “Adopt-a-Street”.

Please do browse the site, pray with us and for us, and even better, visit us in our beautiful Church building for services or social events.

7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, 8 but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
