Healing Service…
next Sunday, and every first Sunday of the month, at 1700.

Vocational Placement
Quin Delport, who is in the ‘discernment process’ for ordained ministry will be joining us from the parishes of Brighton, St Matthias and St Richard for a short placement to explore a church tradition very different to his own. He will be with us on 3rd and 24th April and 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd May. Please make him welcome and pray for him and his family.

Lent Charity Lunches
Come along to church on Tuesdays in Lent at 1200 for fellowship and a simple lunch of homemade soup, baguette, tea and biscuits – all for £5. Proceeds after costs will support St Anne’s Day Centre in Kemp Town. For those that would like to join, there will be a half-hour Bible study from 1115-1145. Or just come for lunch!

Annual Vestry & Parochial Church Meetings
This year’s APCM (rather like an AGM) will be on Sunday 1st May after the 1000 Parish Eucharist. We will elect Churchwardens to serve for the coming year and members of the Parochial Church Council (where there are vacancies – posts are usually held for three years). Annual reports and accounts will be available a couple of weeks in advance of the meeting.
