Wellesley College – Days Bay

Our Story

St Alban’s Church is a church community with music-filled worship, opportunities for prayer and fellowship, a children and families’ outreach, and a commitment to being a blessing in our wider world and community.

There are different ways that you can join us in connecting with God. We enjoy the presence of God through the beauty of our Anglican liturgy with traditional hymns and contemporary songs, quiet and reflective weekday communions, occasional services with other local churches and through the fun and fellowship of children and families gatherings.

We offer opportunities for you to discover, grow and deepen your Christian life, through study groups, prayer, and fellowship groups such as women’s evenings, men’s group and community gatherings. Our children and families programme is rebuilding after Covid, and features seasonal events with creative activities.

Our mother church in Ngaio Street is currently closed for earthquake strengthening, so we meet most Sundays in the Wellesley College hall chapel. Our parish office is in our parish hall next to the church in Ngaio Street, Eastbourne.

What a busy happy time! A new church member (Winter Bourke) was baptised last Sunday, our new Minister (Sue Brown) has been announced and we now celebrate a lifetime of priestly service – including 10 years as vicar plus 23 years as an Eastbourne parishioner in this event on Sunday 26 November. All welcome to whatever part – the service itself, the after-service speeches and the brunch – that you are able to attend. See MoreSee Less
