Welcome to our website! Christ Church & St Mary Magdalen and St Peter and St Paul, St Leonards on Sea is your Parish, serving the community of central St Leonards.

We exist to worship God, to enable people of all ages to respond to the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to work in love and fellowship for God's kingdom on earth. This website will give you a glimpse of our life and ministry, but nothing substitutes for an actual visit. So, do join us. A warm welcome awaits!

Everyone is welcome to come to any Mass, event, or book a place on any course we offer. The church building is grade 2* listed so offers additional interest for general visitors to have a look around. The church is open everyday for Mass, private prayer and visitors.
