The church building was erected during 1870 and 1871 as a Christian Mission and dedicated by William Booth in 1871. William Booth is better known as General Booth of the Salvation Army, which he later founded. His wife, Catherine, laid the foundation stone on Thursday, July 6th, 1871.
The church became a United Methodist Chapel in 1907 and on the occasion of the Methodist Union in 1932 three branches of the Methodist Church, the Wesleyan, the Primitive and the United joined to become one church.
In 1958 the Church was extensively renovated. In 1979 a hall and kitchen were added. The hall is now a popular venue for many church and village activities.
There is a Sunday service at 2.30pm. Mothering Sunday and Harvest Thanksgiving Services are at 10.30am.
Details of our services and church news are also given in the Parish News of St. Mary the Virgin, Ninfield.
Open to everyone and held every fortnight in the hall on a Wednesday at 2.30pm. Our friends from Battle Methodist join us.
Baptism, Weddings and Funerals

In the summer we hold an open air service near the Ridel Gardens. The Hastings Citadel Salvation Army Band and Songsters come to lead the music.
