Welcome to St Alban's, Eastbourne
St Alban's is the gathering place for a vibrant faith community including ecumenical endeavour, outreach and community engagement.
As well as regular worship and opportunities for prayer and fellowship, activities include a term time rhythm of children and families ministry, an all-comers ‘Pop in and Play’ on Friday mornings, and a community vegetable garden.
Set in a tranquil garden, the lovely historic hundred-year-old church is open daily for visitors and parishioners to enjoy the peaceful surroundings in the presence of God. We welcome you.
We welcome visitors and would love you to come and share in worship with us. Morning tea fellowship follows our 9.30am worship on Sundays, and our 10am worship on Thursdays.
On Sunday 15 May we celebrated the Day of Pentecost, marking the end of the season of Eastertide, and the outpouring of God's Holy Spirit on all people.
We have now entered "Ordinary Time". What is that?
Meaning "ordered" or "numbered" time, Ordinary Time is celebrated in two segments: from the Monday after the Baptism of the Lord up to Ash Wednesday, and from the Monday after Pentecost to the First Sunday of Advent. This makes it the longest season of the liturgical year. The colour for this season is green, the colour of hope and growth. We are invited in Ordinary Time to meditate upon the whole mystery of Christ - his life, miracles and teaching - in the light of his resurrection.
Prayer for Ordinary Time
Holy God, call us closer to you.
Deepen our faith in you.
In this season we call "ordinary",
nudge us to notice the extraordinary,
inspire us to respond to the extraordinary,
and motivate us to proclaim
your extraordinary love and grace
in ordinary places.
Through your Son the risen Christ we pray.
