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.

Gatherings and Groups


Sunday Services

We meet together on Sundays and our time starts with songs and prayers. We then have a focussed time listening to a talk on a passage from the bible. Sunday morning service starts at 11am and usually finishes around 12noon. There are children's activities for primary aged children (Explorers) and sermon searches for teenagers. There is a self-service creche room if you wish to take your younger children out but feel free to keep them with you in the service if you wish. Every second Sunday there is a all-age family service and the children stay in for the whole service and we worship together.



Prayer is an important part of the life of the church. There are many opportunities to prayer together. Fortnightly on a Wednesday at 7.30pm we meet for Prayer Pulse online. Every 3 months we have a morning Prayer time on a Saturday. There are prayer triplets and personal prayer groups. Please speak to a deacon for more information.
