Holy Trinity Church in the town centre took a different approach to Valentine’s Day on Sunday by celebrating Hastings.

A ‘people’s’ photo gallery was curated and showcased in the Robertson Street building. The church, which is popular with the young and non-religious, asked people to send in their favourite photos of the town, which were then displayed.

Simon Larkin from Holy Trinity said: “As part of our ‘Love Hastings’ initiative we asked people to email in their favourite photos of Hastings. We had over 200 photos sent in which were displayed in the church. People really enjoyed being able to contribute creatively. It was fascinating seeing which places people wanted to share. The gallery will continue to be open for the next two Sundays mornings, with services at 9.30am and 11.15am.
