A Brief History….

On 1st October 1994 the Link and Southerden Books first opened their doors in Southerden House, Market Street, brought into being by the Crosslink Trust – churches working together in Hailsham.

By 1999, they had outgrown Southerden House and moved to larger premises in Sheriffs Place.



As well as serving good value food and drinks, the Link provides a welcoming and safe place and a contact point for the churches and the people of Hailsham and beyond, and for our volunteers with learning difficulties.

The bookshop provides Christian literature to people from the churches and a listening point for those wanting to talk about and explore faith.


There will be a service of thanks and recommissioning in November, followed by tea. Those from the Link and Southerden Books hope that you will be able to join them. Watch this space for more details.
