Helping our community
Jesus commanded us to “Love our Neighbour”. We are determined that we should show God’s love to those around us, starting with those closest to us, (family friends and neighbours), then our community and then to those in need in this hurting world.
As well as supporting spiritual needs we also try to help in other practical ways.
Our group of volunteers regularly visit residents in our village who may
be bereaved, elderly, lonely or infirm to offer friendship, love and support at difficult times.
We regularly visit those members of our church family in hospital.
PARCHE (Pastoral Action in Residential Care Homes and for the Elderly)
In conjunction with other churches we have two volunteer teams visiting
East Dean Grange Care Home and the Ravelstone Grange Rest Home in Eastbourne to bring services of worship and prayer to residents no longer able to manage the journey to church.
Our Church regularly supports:
Church Mission Society
Diocesan Association for Family Support Work
The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team
The Children’s Society
Love in a Box
And other charities at home and abroad
