The coastal town of Seaford sits between Brighton and Eastbourne and very close to the iconic Seven Sisters range of chalk cliffs. The town has a population of 24,000 people and is well served by a range of local amenities.
The Parish of Sutton with Seaford has two churches, St. Leonard’s is in the town centre and St. Luke’s is in the Chyngton area of town.
St. Leonard's Church
St Leonard’s Church is a place for Christian worship and a quiet oasis, open every morning of the week, where individuals may pause for peace and for prayer. Some come to give thanks for good things, some to ask for God’s help, others to pray or to ask for prayers for those they love.
The church is a place where Christian teaching, counsel and pastoral care are offered. It is a place of fellowship for anyone, whether they belong to the church or not. It is also a springboard for Christian evangelism, social action and outreach into the wider community. You can find out about the services in St. Leonard’s here.
St. Leonard’s Church is a prominent landmark at the centre of Seaford, its imposing tower catches the eye of people entering the town along its main roads, or walking on the nearby chalk cliffs, and it is also plainly visible from offshore.
The church also serves as a venue for various big events, including civic and community occasions, services for war veterans, scouts and guides, school celebrations and musical concerts. Details of our popular series of Saturday Lunchtime Concerts can be found here.
St Luke’s Church is situated in Walmer Road, in the Chyngton area of Seaford. Like St Leonard’s Church it is primarily a place of Christian worship. Opened in 1959 to serve the local community its design is two fold, firstly for worship and secondly as a community centre. Extended in recent years it now provides excellent modern facilities.
At St Luke’s we strive to make everyone welcome, be they newcomers or regular attenders – it makes no difference to the welcome you will receive. We are, at the same time, sensitive to the fact that some folk want to ease themselves gently into a new church – so guaranteed no pressure!
Whether you are just starting your journey of faith and looking for a place in which to express it and possibly explore it further, or perhaps you have recently moved into the area and are seeking a new church in which to continue that journey – here we hope you will find all of the help, support and encouragement you need amongst fellow pilgrims.
Our services are wide ranging in styles and we do hope that you will visit St Luke’s and find what you are seeking! Details of services can be found here.
