News and events

Bible Reading Fellowship
The New Daylight notes for September to December are in the pigeonholes for those who have ordered them.
Hospitality and Welcome on a Sunday: we all benefit from the hospitality of others at the times of our Sunday worship in our churches.

Volunteers needed
We presently need further people to act as Sidesperson, at both 08.00 and 09.30am at the Parish Church. These responsibilities are set by rota, and the aim is to spread this ministry fairly and appropriately. Please speak to the Rector or to Marjorie Kipling if you can offer in either role.
Similarly, we need some extra people to join our post-9.30am service coffee team. This task recurs roughly once a month by rota.

Church Open Day
Another opportunity to offer something special to our community. On the day of our Patronal Festival, Sunday 28 August, we open the doors of the parish church to visitors from 12 noon to 4pm, for people to visit, enjoy and have their eyes opened to what a treasure lies in their midst. There will be trips up the tower, history details, refreshments, displays and a very warm welcome; quizzes, music, and prayers on the hour. I need to build a group of guides and welcomers to assist on the day. Please speak to me today, or email me this week, if you can join that team. Revd Andrew Doye, Rector

St Roche’s Day service 16 August 2022
The annual open-air service of healing will take place on St Roche’s Day, Tuesday 16th August at 6.30 pm in the churchyard of The Parish Church
of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Singleton. Visitors are most welcome. There will be opportunity for prayers of healing and the laying on of hands.

Ride & Stride Event
On Saturday 10 September 2022, across the county people will be sponsored to cycle, walk or horse ride to visit historic churches and to raise money that will be split between their own church and the Sussex Historic Churches Trust. Our Church will be open to visitors, and a few of our congregation will be riding & striding and would welcome your sponsorship for Team Westbourne. Speak to Jane S 01243 431810 or use JustGiving www.justgiving.com/fundraising/WestbourneTeam to donate. More information is in the welcome area.

Food donations wanted We have for several years collected food for Stonepillow at the back of the church, and currently stocks have fallen low. Can you help Stonepillow? The high need is for instant coffee, sugar, cooking oil, gravy granules, spices, tinned meat (no spam please) tinned vegetables, pre-made custard, and a medium need for pot noodles, super noodles, pasta lunch pots, cereals (no cornflakes or porridge), breakfast/brunch bars, biscuits, chocolates & treats, crisps.

Return of the Chalice
The wine is again a regular part of our communion services. At any service, if you prefer to receive the bread only, please simply return to your seat without visiting the chalice assistant. Please don’t drink from the chalice if you have a cold or fever, and try to maintain social distancing while moving to and from the stations.

Macmillan Cancer Support
After a 3 year break due to Covid, we are again hosting a coffee morning on Friday 9th September 2022, 10.30am - 12.30pm.
