News and Events 

Remembrance Sunday - Poppy Appeal  There is a cash collection at each service TODAY (Sunday, 10th November) for the British Legion Poppy Appeal. If you can gift-aid your donation, please use a blue envelope, mark it ”Poppy  Appeal”, and add your details clearly. Cheques payable to “St John the Baptist Westbourne”.

Sunday 17 November 2019 - Talk by theatre director, Roger Redfarn followed by a Cream Tea.  In the Parish Hall at 3.00 pm.  Tickets at £8 are sold at coffee after 9.30am service or from Rona Musker or Susie D… and followed in the evening, at 6pm, by Choral Evensong, for all who’d like to join us across the road in the Parish Church.

Morning Prayer takes place in St John the Baptist Church at 08:30 to 09:00 every weekday morning. This is part of the calling of our churches to pray for our nation, communities and Diocese, together with those with current needs known to our own community. I am deeply appreciative of those who join to be a part of this fellowship of intercession. It can be a regular day of the week, or entirely occasional: your presence is very welcome. Someone will have been rota’d to lead the liturgy that morning and nobody attending would feel uncomfortable in what is asked. If you can sometimes manage this half an hour in the morning, please just turn up when the opportunity arises. Books are provided. Andrew Doye, Rector

Next Deanery Prayer Gatherings – Saturday, 16 November 2019 at East Marden Church, PO18 9JE at 9.30am; and Thursday 5 December 2019 at St Nicholas, West Thorney at 12 noon.

Volunteers wanted: please speak to Marjorie Kipling if you could help:

Pianists wanted - Do we have any volunteers please who can play the piano to a simple level (or better) and have some daytime availability? I am raising a small team for a regular children’s service from the New Year and need to hear from you now. Andrew Doye, Rector.

Advance Notices: you can collect a separate list of events for November and December from the church.
