Living Stones Community Church

Living Stones Community Church started in 1982, as a group of Christians who wanted to make a difference. The church is now two congregations which meet in the Old Town area of Eastbourne. Find out more about our other congregation at their website Old Town Community Church.

Watch this video message from our founding Elder, Martyn about our core values and beliefs.

Home for Living Stones is Community Wise in Old Town. We have been in partnership with Community Wise, a community centre in Old Town, since the our beginning. You can find out more at the Community Wise website.

While not part of a wider denomination or movement we foster our links with local churches, especially churches in the Old Town area and also like-minded churches across the town.  We are members of the Evangelical Alliance UK and also Churches Together for Eastbourne.

We are linked to a wider community of charities both here in Eastbourne and across the world, please click on their logo to visit their webages.
