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 most of the day (except Sunday afternoons).


The building is a masterpiece of Victorian Church architecture inspired by the Oxford Movement of the mid-19th century. There is a marvelous 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.
