Linking Lives Eastbourne is part of a national initiative (Linking Lives UK) and was set up to respond to the needs of lonely and isolated people in the Eastbourne area, with Byron Stevens as the Co-ordinator. Our patron is the Right Revd Richard Jackson, Bishop of Lewes.

In November 2016 the first wave of volunteers completed their inaugural training, required to befriend people on a one-to-one basis.

If you’d like to support us either as a volunteer, financially or in prayer, or just to find out more, please send an email to or contact St John’s Church Office.
