In the service of Collation and Induction for our new vicar, the Reverend Natalie Loveless on 16th December, the Bishop of Chichester, the Right Reverend Dr Martin Warner, led us in this prayer for Natalie and for our parish which is committed to her care......
God our Father, Lord of all the world,
we thank you that through your Son
you have called us
into the fellowship of your universal church.
Hear our prayer for all your faithful people
that in their vocation and ministry
each may be an instrument of your love,
and give to your servant Natalie
and all who minister in this place
the needful gifts of grace;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Who lives and reigns with you and Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
We are a Eucharistic Church - that is, the central focus of our worship is to receive Holy Communion together as 'the body of Christ'.
Our congregation includes many young families and ages range from the very young to the elderly.
Our main Sunday service (at 9.45) usually has a congregation of about 120. We are always pleased to see new people and if you have not been before and would like to visit, you will receive a warm welcome.
More information on our regular services can be found in the latest News Sheet in the left-hand column and above this item.
The children have adopted the name of 'J Squad' and have designed this striking poster, the image of which will serve as our logo when promoting all future events.
We now split into two groups with children Year 6 and above going upstairs for a more age-appropriate J Squad session.
