We are privileged to be part of an outstanding church with a rich history, but we believe the best is yet to come!

Our vision is to see an increasingly diverse and dynamic church made up of many people whose lives have been changed by meeting Jesus. We want to serve Hastings & 1066 Country, making a difference to the people and the communities around us, seeing many men and women, families and singles, adults and children, rich and poor, professionals and unemployed, those with huge faith and those with none, people of all backgrounds, knowing Jesus better and living life to the full, as Jesus promised.


The way we will see this vision become a reality includes:

  • Worshipping and glorifying Jesus;
  • Consistently proclaiming the good news of Jesus by word, deed and lifestyle;
  • Encountering the Holy Spirit, who is promised to all believers;
  • Applying the Bible to everyday life;
  • Playing a positive role in our local community, particularly by offering practical support to those in need and demonstrating the mercy and kindness of God, through social action and social enterprise;
  • Through our Sunday morning and evening meetings, where all are welcome;
  • Through our Community Groups and other ministries that reach out to and serve the communities around us;
  • Discipling church members and equipping them to use their God-given talents;
  • Using our facilities, which include the Hastings Centre, Coffee Box, an outside field and children’s play area, and our pay and display car park, to serve and bless the local area;
  • Being a large, vibrant Christian community of all ages, races and backgrounds.
