Welcome to Eastney Evangelical Church, part of God's great family stretching across the world. Believing in Jesus and knowing His total forgiveness, we live under God's smile and in His care. Here He's transforming us to be " Vibrant in Christ, Confident in His Gospel and Living our His love".
In changing times, we have found the Lord never fails: in fearful times, He always protects: as life ends, we are confident He will receive us for ever.
