Hawkinge Baptist Church



Location
Hawkinge Free Church, having sold their church premises in 'The Street', purchased an interest in the community centre. In addition to all the original facilities planned for the community centre we have a room that will also be multifunctional for the community. We use the area, known as the Chapel, for regular meetings, and we would be pleased to have you join with us. Please view our Activities and Events pages.
