We are committed to making a difference in our community, and so every Thursday afternoon we run the Social Club at our church premises. We provide croquet on the lawn (weather permitting), indoor short mat bowls (we don’t know of any other church converted into a bowling green once a week), scrabble, chess, jigsaw puzzles etc, plus a table for crafts.
Afternoon tea and cakes are provided, and everything is free. We call this friendship evangelism! And it’s exciting to rub shoulders with people who are perhaps just an invite away from a life-changing encounter with Christ.
Other initiatives include holding a Big Lunch on the church lawn in the summer for local residents, and also a summer Garden Party.
Through Churches Together we participate in occasional Prayer walk’s, taking turns to meet at different churches throughout Bexhill.
We regularly take services at our local hospital and occasionally at residential care homes.
We hold a Toddler group for parents and carers on Thursday morning’s @ 10am-11:30am term time only.
