Our Church Vision
Many years ago now, having come together as Cross Way, a Local Ecumenical Partnership, we set out to refurbish the United Reformed Church premises in Clinton Place.
Our vision was to create a Christian centre for our outreach and with facilities for the wider use by the community. We sought to serve the community and to achieve this aim, we needed funding!
Gifts and grants were received from trusts and very particularly, the Keith Baker Trust, the Town Council, Seaford organisations such as Rotary and Inner Wheel and many individuals.
Facilities to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act were required before some organisations and elected bodies could use the buildings. Our original vision in terms of the buildings has become reality.
The Grand Opening was on Saturday, 13 October 2012
Rev Rose Westwood, our minister, representatives of Seaford organisations, Peter
Murphy, our architect, and many members of Cross Way, welcomed Councillor Linda Wallraven,
the Mayor of Seaford and Mrs Liz Holland, her Consort, to afternoon tea in the Clinton
Hall. Everyone was invited to tour the Centre and see the new facilities. All were
greatly impressed by the design and the workmanship which had produced an enlarged
modern well equipped kitchen and transformed the Stafford Hall into very modern up-
Following an introduction by Cochrane Young, the Church Secretary, Councillor Linda Wallraven, the Mayor of Seaford, performed the official opening cutting the tape at the new main entrance. The Mayor spoke warmly about our new facilities which are now available for community use, right in the centre of Seaford.
