A BIG thank you to Cheryl Nunes who gave us a lovely talk on the history and work of the Children’s Society at our Christingle on 3rd February.
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 February 2019 is here.
Jean Wilson has come to the end of the permitted five years as Church Warden and has retired. We welcome Christine Oades who was elected on 23rd April 2017, with Brian Zeng-Daw who continues in office, as our Church Wardens.
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.
