Bible By The Beach Sunday Celebration

Bible by the Beach – Sunday 5th May at 7:15pm in Devonshire Park Theatre

As always,  the trustees of Bible by the Beach are delighted to invite local churches to join them for the Sunday Evening Celebration – free of charge.  We are delighted to have Jason Roach, Director of Ministries at London City Mission, speaking on “God’s word for the world”

However, this year, the celebration will be in the Devonshire Park Theatre and consequently there is limited capacity.  Therefore we will be issuing wristbands to those who would like to attend and we will be sending these out to local churches.   We want to make this as simple as possible:

• we don’t need names
• you might just want to put the wristbands out for people to take.
• booked delegates do not need a special wristband – they will automatically be admitted.
• there will be a relay in the Floral Hall
• seats in the Devonshire park Theatre will be on a first come/first served basis

We would be very grateful if you could give me an estimate of how many you might require please?  Otherwise, I can send a few out and am very happy for people to get in touch if they need more.

Many thanks for your help

Faith Community Security Briefings

Counter Terrorism Policing are offering further personal security briefings delivered on Microsoft teams for elected representatives as well as local faith leaders.  The briefings will be taking place monthly in February, March and April and will then move to bi-monthly briefings being delivered in June, August, October and December. Whilst the personal security briefings will continue to be broken down into geographical areas and will be delivered locally, you are welcome to attend any session.

There will be an opportunity within the briefing to ask questions to the presenter, however any questions should relate to details contained within the briefing. Any specific questions regarding individual security measures or issues should be directed to your local policing team. For more information see link below

Faith Security Training project
We are pleased to announce the piloting of the Faith Security Training
project. This is a brand-new course developed by the Home Office, in
consultation with experts from security and policing partners, that will be
a free learning resource for faith communities.

The course, which is five modules in total, is designed to equip
participants with essential skills to enhance the security and safety in
their places of worship. Participating in the pilot will give you the chance
to contribute your expertise and materially shape the project, ensuring it
is effective at helping keep communities safe when the project is rolled
out more widely.

We would like to invite members of faith communities, particularly people
in positions of leadership or responsibility for security at places of
worship, to attend and provide feedback on the content and delivery.
If you are interested in attending one of the pilot sessions, please

World Day of Prayer Seeks 2025 Venue

Childrens Choir at World Day of Prayer – Eastbourne

Only God planned to have the Christian Women of Palestine write the Service for 2024!

We were so encouraged to have a full Church in the brand new building and a collection of £650.00 to send towards the work of WDP in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and projects run by Christian Charities around the world.

The annual World Day of Prayer Service was celebrated at Emmanuel Church, (Methodist-URC) in Upperton Road, Eastbourne on Friday 1st March at 2.30pm.

The Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Candy Vaughan, attended and she was moved by the Service written this year by the Christian Women of Palestine. The home-schooled children’s choir led singing in both Arabic and English before and during the Service with their Musical Director Marylou Cockshoot.

Members of Emmanuel Church, Gill and Garth Hewitt, Gospel Singer, took part in the Service. Gill read a prayer from Susan, their Christian friend in Palestine and Garth sang one of his songs ‘My Name is Palestine’ (Garth Hewitt | My Name Is Palestine) based on a painting he saw in Banksey’s Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem by Suleiman Mansour.

After the Service we enjoyed homemade cakes using Palestinian recipes and a cup of tea in the hall. Two committee members narrated the slideshow presentation on Palestine.

The Eastbourne WDP Committee are looking for a local Church to host next years’ Service on 7th March 2025 written by the Christian Women of the Cook Islands – ‘I made you wonderful’. Further information from Kathryn Anderson at:

Kind regards,

Kathryn Anderson on behalf of Eastbourne’s WDP Committee.
