Revd Alison Green - The parish of Westbourne has been grateful for the ministry of Alison over the past year.  We have now sadly to say farewell as she moves to her permanent post as Chaplain to Chichester University and sets aside her Sunday duties here.  We wish Alison every success and enjoyment in her ongoing roles.  Opportunities to show support for Alison arise at the 9.30am service at St John's on 13 May 2018 (which will be her last weekend in the parish) and on the following evening Monday 14 May 2018 at 7.30pm at her licensing service in the chapel of the University, Bishop Otter Campus, Chichester, to which all friends from Westbourne are warmly invited.  

2018 is the Diocesan Year of Prayer
As Christ was raised by your glory, O Father, so may we be raised to new life and rejoice to be called your children, both now and for ever.
