Community

God is present in the gift of community and St Alban's is committed to being a vital part of our local Eastbourne community and the wider Hutt Valley.

  • Our parish fosters links with the local community in many ways, for example Pop in and Play pre-school play group and Take a Break seniors fellowship and lunch
  • St Alban's and parishioners have had a longstanding connection with the community in Taita-Pomare and also work closely with our neighbouring churches of all denominations
  • The parish also provides chaplaincy at Wellesley College

Talk to us too about baptisms, weddings or funerals.

We also host retreats.

If you're keen to read the story of Anglicans in Eastbourne and the bays going back to the 1840s, you can buy a copy of the parish history by Julia Stuart. "For Everything Its Season: A History of Anglicans in Eastbourne 1844 - 2009" is a 224-page copiously illustrated and beautifully produced book which was published in 2010. Email the church office to buy your copy. $15 including P&P.
