The children then join the congregation for the last part of our morning service at East Dean Church, from where they are ready to be taken home at about 10.45.

Planning your Visit

Our Churches 

Our churches seek to offer a warm welcome, authentic worship from the heart, and talks which are Biblical, expository, and down-to-earth.

East-Dean-Church TVP4573 S

East Dean

A living community of faith at the heart of the village

On Sunday mornings at East Dean we hold modern language services which appeal to people of all ages, with music that includes well-loved hymns plus the best modern songs. Children are especially welcome at our morning services – and we offer a supervised Crèche and regular activities for children so that parents can enjoy their worship without distraction.  For details of our services click here.
