Church Life


Alpha is a weekly course that creates a space, where people can come and learn about the Christian faith through conversation about faith, life and God. Our next course will run in September 2020. Click here for more information!

Aspire & The Call

Aspire, our women’s group and The Call, our men’s group, meet termly to pray together, encourage one another and provoke each other to pursue Jesus in every area of our lives. We normally do this alongside good food and lots of fun!


CheckMates is our chess club for all chess enthusiasts! It is held once a month on a Monday evening at Ropemaker Centre and is open to all.

CheckMates begins at 7:30pm however we have also recently launched Junior CheckMates from 6pm for those under 18. Please contact us for details of our next meeting.

Freedom Group

Our Freedom Group meets for a monthly coffee morning, as well as socially for days out, walks and trips etc. As the word freedom implies, this group can open up a whole new way of life for you!

Coffee mornings are normally held on the 4th Saturday of the month at 10:30am at Ropemaker Centre.

Freedom in Christ

Freedom in Christ is a 10 week Life-Changing Discipleship course which we offer once a year, normally beginning January.

We have many stories of people coming to understand who they really are, and what it means to follow Jesus and to be one of his disciples.

This is a great course with high quality teaching, small group discussions and an ‘away day’ – all part of the 10 weeks. Please let us know if you are interested in the course!

The Hub

The Hub is a monthly meeting provided primarily, but not exclusively, for older people. The focus is on having a meal together in the context of a warm, friendly and welcoming environment.

In addition, a speaker or some other form of entertainment is included in the event. Meetings start at 11am and are held every second Wednesday of the month at Ropemaker Centre.

Life Groups

In the New Testament we see that the early church not only gathered publicly where they could but they would also meet regularly in people’s homes. 

At ChristChurch we follow this principle and have life groups meeting in people’s houses across Hailsham and in the surrounding areas. These groups have a great time together looking at the bible in greater depth, worshipping God and just enjoying ‘doing life’ together. 

These groups meet in both the daytime and evenings. If you would like more information about these groups please contact us.

Love Hailsham

We love our town and we know God does too! One Saturday morning each month we show our love to the town practically through litterpicking, speaking to people and offering to pray for people.

Along side Love Hailsham, our healing team on a Saturday morning offer prayer to the people of Hailsham on the Streets.

We set up on Market Sqaure and have had some remarkable contacts with people. It is so exciting to see Jesus at work in people’s lives in our town.

The Marriage Course

The marriage course is an excellent 7 week course that s designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage. It is a mixture of easy watching short films alongside conversations as a couple.

The set up is informal in tables of two so you don’t have to make conversation, just enjoy time together. And of course there are always candles and cake for a romantic evening for two!

We normally run this course once a year but are always happy to offer support at any other time.


Prayer is a wonderful privilege for the Christian, to know that you can approach the God of the universe and speak with Him.  It was a daily part of Jesus’ life and so His is an example for us to copy.  You will find that at all our meetings there will be prayer happening, however there are several occasions where we ask people to gather and pray.  There are weekly prayer meetings on a Sunday morning from 9:15am, as well as our three monthly prayer meetings; Breakthrough at 7:30pm (normally the first monday of the month), Wake Up & Pray at 6:30am (normally the second Monday of the month), Inspiration Prayer Meetings at 10am (normally the last Wednesday of the month).

Simply Worship & Healing House

Simply Worship does exactly what it says on the tin! It is an evening to gather together, lay aside all else and focus on worshipping God and giving him glory. We meet every other month on a Thursday or Sunday night from 7:30pm.

Healing House runs alongside Simply Worship. We believe God loves each one of us passionately, wanting us to live healthy & meaningful lives. Whatever your physical or emotional need, please do come & receive prayer for healing. We have a trained team of people who will pray for you in a relaxed, safe & non-threatening environment.
