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 May 2016 is here.

The Parish gives very grateful thanks to Leslie Adams, who has retired as Church Warden and has been given the honorary title Church Warden Emeritus, after four decades of service. We welcome Brian Zeng-Daw who was newly commissioned on 16th May, with Jean Wilson 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.
