St John’s Church is a registered charity in England and Wales (1130861)

We are at the heart of the small town of Polegate, situated at the foot of the South Downs, six miles inland from the seaside resort of Eastbourne. We are a congregation of all ages and backgrounds trying to bring the life changing message of Jesus Christ to our community. Here you will find information about ways we try to do this. If you’re visiting the area why not come along and say hello!




Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. 2 Thessalonians 2v16
