St John's Church Meads, Eastbourne
The parish of St John the Evangelist is in the seaside town of Eastbourne in the area known as “Meads”. Originally a separate village, Meads continues to have a distinct character from the rest of Eastbourne. St John’s seeks to be a church that grows through the Word and Spirit. This means being centred around Jesus, by placing scripture at the heart of all we do, and being empowered and equipped by the Holy Spirit – giving space to encounter and hear from God and by allowing for intimacy as well as awe and mystery in worship. Our mission can be summarised thus “Worshipping God, Building his church, Loving his world”
