Bible Reading Fellowship notes will be available in church pigeon holes for those who have ordered them, from today.  This is the time of year to pay, especially if you usually pay for the year - i.e. three booklets costing £13.50 (£4.50 each). Dennis Farr

Church Times copies – an excellent read: recent copies are available for a few weeks on the shelves by the north door.  Please borrow and return, before they are committed to the re-cycling.

Chichester Cathedral Festival of Flowers – 31 May to 2 June 2018.

The new year for the 50/50 Club begins in May and any new members would be welcome.  All you have to do is buy a year’s stake for £20 and you will be allocated a number.  All the numbers are then pooled and the three lucky winners are drawn at the end of each month.  50% of the money is given as prizes with the remaining 50% being donated to St. John’s Church.  Please contact one of the following if you are interested in joining: Carole W, Angie L or Robina R.
