Our Woodingdean Community

Woodingdean is a village of around 10,000 people that sits on a hill (approx. 128m above sea level) about 2 miles to the east of Brighton. The village has a thriving community with an abundance of clubs and classes for all age groups. The village's history is mainly farming based and the major housing developments happened after the First World War until the 1960'

As a Church we are very proud to be involved with the Woodingdean Community and do what we can to support the amazing people who live here. We love our links with both Woodingdean Primary School and Rudyard Kipling Primary School, where we get to hold special services and perform at assemblies sharing bible stories through
