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 July 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.

1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.” Luke 10, vv 1-5, NIVUK
