Eastbourne Liberal Jewish Community - בית חברים


Our services in 2018 will be held at the Christ the King Catholic church hall, 3 Princes Road (on the Langney roundabout), Eastbourne, East Sussex BN23 6HS and at Alice Croft House, Cornfield Lane, Eastbourne, BN21 4NE.

Please refer to the list below for the times and locations of services. 

Our services are led by student rabbis, visiting rabbis and lay leaders and there are always many opportunities for congregation participation from those who wish to do so. The services are in a mixture of English and Hebrew (with transliteration available) and are dignified but informal.

The hall at CTK is fully disabled-accessible with disabled toilet facilities and a free car park with step-free access.
