News and Events

Churchyard Work Party - a huge thank you to everyone who helped in the churchyard yesterday, and to those who have cut grass, strimmed around the gravestones and cleared the weeds during the recent months. It made a big difference and the churchyard now looks tidy again.

Our Parish Hall -  while the nursery school is on holiday there is an opportunity to do some much needed painting and decorating. If you missed Andrew Turner’s notice last week but could help, please speak to him.

Drop In volunteers - many people have volunteered their help over the years, but now we would like some more helpers to provide a welcome on a Monday and Thursday* morning from 10 to 12 noon. You may have missed the notice last week – but if you would like to know more speak to Andrew Turner or Marjorie Kipling or just “Drop In” to find out what is involved.
(*  not the first Thursday of the month)

Chichester Diocese are running a free Social Media training workshop on Tuesday 17 September 2019, from 10am - 4pm in Hove. Please speak to a Church Warden if you could attend, and later brief the PCC on this topic.
