A Message from our Rector

Rev. Philip Hodgins, Rector of East Hoathly

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our website.

East Hoathly Parish Church has been at the heart of this vibrant community for over 800 years. During that time it has played an important role in many of the significant events in village and national life. It has witnessed the good times and the sad times of the people of the village. If only the building could speak …

East Hoathly Church is not, however, just a building. It is the body of people who meet to worship and pray. We join with Christians throughout the ages to bear witness to the risen Christ who is alive and working in the world today as He has done over the centuries. It is He who can change people and make a powerful difference to their lives.

Whatever your reasons for visiting this website, I pray that you will feel the powerful presence of God in your life, and may He richly bless you.

Phil Hodgins
