St Luke’s Church in Stone Cross has been awarded £500 from the Police Property Act Fund to go towards the ongoing community support work through its Church and Parish Centre.

PC Zachary Hayns and PCSO Daryl Holter recently met with church warden Imogen Lade to present the funds and discuss the great community work carried out by the church.

St Lukes proves a weekly foodbank service in partnership with Eastbourne Foodbank, actively engages with all of the schools, youth groups and community in the parish and provides a safe and trusted space for all members of our community.

Father James Vine said: “This funding will support all users of our Church and Parish Centre. Recent building work has been necessary to enable its future use and we thank Sussex Police for this generous donation.”

PCSO Holter said: “St Luke’s Church and Parish centre is well known for providing support to all who need it within our parish of Stone Cross with North Langney.

“I’m really pleased to have been able to help secure this funding, which will help make a difference to so many people in our community.”
