St Laurence has been part of the community of Eastwood for almost 1000 years. In that time the church has been an integral part of day to day life. And even though we live in the time of many changes, we at St Laurence feel that God is still very much at the heart of our community. Therefore, as church we want to be there for all people at both the joyful and difficult times of life.
