Positioned in the heart of rural East Sussex with distant views to the coast it is the perfect place to enjoy a cuppa with friends.  Visitors to Howard`s Well are welcome to make use of our other facilities such as the grounds and bookshop.


If you are looking for an encounter with Jesus why not join us for 22:2 a service of healing at 10am (Mon-Fri) in the Large Chapel (no need to book just drop in), explore one of our prayer walks, or retreat to a quiet chapel or prayer room.  Our on-duty Chaplain would be happy to pray with you. 


Howard and May Cobb’s vision when they established the Healing Ministry at CCHC in 1928 was to never turn anyone away.  Building on that vision, today, ‘Howard’s Well’ has enabled us to swing our doors wide open inviting all to encounter the Lord’s healing in our grounds, through our hospitality and in our rhythm of worship.

Howard built the well in 1932 when the existing water supply was not sufficient for the numbers of guests visiting.  Anticipating water at 40ft and instead finding it at 80ft the well was much deeper than expected!  Jesus promises:  

“Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”  John 4:14
