Welcome to the St Helens Methodist Church, Hastings website

St Helens is a warm, family-friendly and caring Christian community and we would be delighted to welcome you into our fellowship, either through worship on Sundays, or through any of our other church activities.

Church Services are not taking place in our buildings at present. Join us for worship online using the Zoom platform on Sundays at 10.30am.

For more information and details of how to share in worship on Zoom please contact Revd Philip Wagstaff email: philip.wagstaff@methodist.org.uk or phone: 01424 755699 or Revd Tricia Williams email: revpmwilliams@yahoo.co.uk or phone: 01424 733137.

Our mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in the wider community of Ore Village and the surrounding localities, through traditional as well as innovative worship and activities targeted for families.


We meet at the Ore Community Centre, at 455 Old London Road Hastings TN35 5BH.

In September 2016 we moved out of the old chapel at the top of Clifton Road, on the corner with The Ridge.
