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 The Baptist on 13 May 2018 (which will be her last weekend in the parish); and on the following evening 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.

Saturday 9 June 2018 - Pilgrimage to Chichester Cathedral. We are invited, with other parishes to travel to the Cathedral for a Pilgrimage Service at 12 noon (led by the bishops) and then a bring-and-share lunch (drinks provided).  We hope many will come. The choices are to walk along the canal path from Hunston, beginning at 10.30am with prayer stations along the way; or to assemble in the Bishops Gardens from, say, 11.30am, for the last short leg.  We need you to sign up in church so that we can share transport.   Revd Andrew Doye.

2018 is the Diocesan Year of Prayer        
Through all the changing scenes of life 
In trouble and in joy 
The praises of my God shall still 
My heart and tongue employ.
