Welcome to Christ Church, Blacklands & St. Andrew, Laton Road, Hastings

This is a secular group attached to Christchurch Blacklands and St Andrew.

Membership of the group shall be open to all persons of 18 years and over irrespective of where they live.

The group meets on a Monday evening at 7:30 p.m., once a month between September and June for talks, demonstrations or social events, with occasional meetings and events at other times. New members are always welcome. Further details from the Secretary: 07759-911195 or carylann1066@aol.com

Funds raised by the group are used to support the Church.  

Annual subscriptions, £4.00, become due in September. We contribute £2.00 for each meeting we attend, which includes tea or coffee and biscuits.

We hope to be able to keep an archive of interesting items, such as presentations from talks or photographs of group activities. The first item last season was Charlie’s talk on Ecclesiastical Tat, the PowerPoint presentation from which you may find here.
