SEBANew Hope Baptist Church, Eastbourne

 
  • A reimagined, reenvisioned and revitalised church in the heart of Eastbourne's seaside community

  • A church grateful for Home Mission funding enabling them to build on their vision to establish a vibrant missional church


BePartAfter the sale of their building in Ceylon Place, Eastbourne, God gave the church a heart for a new area of town.  They bought a disused social club in an area with houses and industrial estates, and have a vision to establish a vibrant missional church in this central part of town. 

Having surveyed the area, the church wants to reach people of all ages living in more than 800 houses in the area.  They need human resources to enable them to achieve this vision and are grateful for our prayer as well as financial support.

NewHopeOutsideWe give thanks for…
  • We thank God for Home Mission and are really grateful that we have been granted Home Mission and especially to all who support Home Mission through financial giving and prayer. 
  • We thank God we are now in our new refurbished building and the specific part of town it is located in 
  • We thank God for the financial provision to purchase and refurbish our church building that was made available through the sale of Ceylon Place and wise investments. 
  • We thank God for leading us to this part of town (Three years before we purchased our building, as we prayer walked, God clearly gave us a heart for this area).

NewHopeInsideWe need prayer for…
  • Practical  needs: ie, workers in administration, audio visuals, staff to start mothers and toddlers group, Messy Church, life groups, musicians and worship leaders 
  • Church growth through conversion – clear strategy to reach out to the 800 homes in the immediate area. 
  • For fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit for continued vision, renewal, inspiration and encouragement.
