The church manages Community Wise, a community centre, which is a focal point for the local community and a provider of community services. It is used by over 2000 people every week who attend a regular programme including senior citizens groups, dance and art groups, NCT, cubs and scouts, English Language classes, Slimming World, singing plus a local village market once a month.
Community Wise is a popular venue for children’s birthday parties and other events in Eastbourne. We have two large halls and several smaller meeting rooms available for hire as well as all the facilities and equipment needed to make your event a success.
We have recently fully re-developed our back playground making it into a safe and secure space available for hire.
Community Wise has its own community shop run by a team of staff and volunteers. It is a hub of life and the place to find a bargain. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday 10am – 4pm each day, closing each day for lunch from 1pm – 2pm and on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
