Remembrance Sunday - Poppy Appeal  There is a cash collection at each service on Sunday, 10thNovember 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”.

Morning Prayer takes place in St John the Baptist Church at 0830 to 0900 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 – Thursday, 7 November at Funtington at 12 Noon; and Saturday, 16 November at East Marden Church, PO18 9JE at 9.30am.

Parish Giving Scheme - Please support our churches by means of a regular promised contribution, if possible through the Parish Giving Scheme.  Leaflets and application forms are at the back of our churchesor contact Ali George.
