However if you wish to bring your own refreshments and a cup you will be able to sit outside the Church after the service for fellowship with others, weather permitting.

Welcome to the website of the United Benefice of St. Mary Magdalene Wartling and of All Saints Herstmonceux

Our area is a  beautiful place to live and work.    From our historical villages to the beauty of the Downs and our local beaches, we have so much to be thankful for.   We believe that everything good points to the Creator, and as Christians, we know that God has introduced Himself to us in the person of Jesus Christ. 

We help people explore what it means to be a Christian today, here we can experience God’s love and inspire one another to make a real difference to society.   

People of all ages and stages are part of our church, and we are grateful to be contributing to the cultural, social, commercial and spiritual life of our area and region.

For details and reports of recent events, please see the 'News From The Churches' link above.
