This is our faith: a Diocesan questionnaire from the Bishop
‘2025 marks the 950th anniversary of the move of Christian mission in this diocese from Selsey to Chichester. This gives us an opportunity to say something about who we are as the inheritors in the 21st century of this great momentum of Christian witness and faith.
Please respond to four questions about what your faith means to them, in whatever way you wish. We would prefer succinct authenticity to a lengthy sermon!’ Please submit your responses to Fr Anthony by the end of August. Forms are available today.

St Margaret’s Day
We will be keeping our Patronal Festival on Sunday 21st July with the Parish Eucharist in the Village Hall at 1000 followed by a Bring & Share celebration lunch. These worked very well in the church building, so do start thinking about what you might like to contribute in the way of food for others to enjoy: sandwiches, pies, sausage rolls, dips, crudites, lobsters, caviar, etc.
