About us

St Saviour’s is a thriving parish church in the heart of Eastbourne. It is steeped in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Church of England and its Sunday services offer a true ‘bells and smells’ experience.

Mass is said daily in our Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament and the church is open to visitors each day from 8.30am.


The building is a masterpiece of Victorian Church architecture inspired by the Oxford Movement of the mid-19th century. There is a marvellous array of Mosaics designed by Clayton and Bell, a beautifully painted sanctuary arch, a splendid 'Reredos', a goodly amount of stained glass and very ornate baptistry - all fine examples of the craftsmanship of the 'Arts and Crafts' movement of the mid-late 1800s.
