Helping our community

296831 234134746640092 1813207

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.

Home Visits

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.

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.

Friston-Church TVP4624 S


A house of prayer set high on the hill                  

Services at Friston cater particularly for those who prefer a traditional more reflective service using the much-loved words of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and the King James Bible. For details of our services click here.



A church with a message of hope for today in a setting of timeless beauty

All our services are held at 11.15 every Sunday. We offer both modern language and traditional language services. For details of our services click here.


All our churches are open all day and every day for anyone to use as a quiet space for prayer or just to sit and be quiet.
