Charitable/Mission Giving As a church, we split our charitiable giving three ways: We formally support Family Support Work and CMS Missionaries Kevin and Jen Cable, and have a third flexible ‘pot’ in order to be able to respond to a crisis or something which is ‘on the heart’ of a member of the congregation.
There are other Charities, such as The Children's Society and Christian Aid for which we are also committed to raise funds.
Dear St. Peter and St. Paul's.
The support we have received with Harvest food has again being amazing - our cupboards are
well stocked with the basics and lots of nice treats too. With the ever-growing number of families seeking support we will work our way through this in the coming months. It was good to see so many
of our supporters at the AGM, especially those from the east of the county. I hope that with our carol service happening this year in the far west at Funtington, we will be able to welcome those of
you who live in the west of the diocese. With thanks as always for
your ongoing support, which means a huge amount to us and our families.
With warm wishes, Martin and the FSW team

SOME BACKGROUND NOTES.......
The Children’s Society has been supported by St. Peter and St. Paul since the time when there were two children’s homes here in Rustington - Fairlight on the Worthing Road and Carruthers Corfield House in Shaftesbury Road. Members of the church, who formed House Committees, visited these homes regularly. Fund-raising events were held to provide treats for the children.This continued until the early eighties when the homes closed and the charity started to focus on community care.
Minutes of a meeting held in 1980 record that although the local homes had closed, the “Appeal’s Committee” would continue to support the Society as it worked to help vulnerable children.
The Children's Society "Rustington Support Group" now hold four fundraising activities each year. The popular "Bake and Brew" Saturday morning events are held in the Spring and Autumn. A dinner or
afternoon tea is held in the Summer months and in December the Children's Society host the Christingle Service at our church on a Sunday afternoon and this is always very well attended by children
and adults alike. Since 1985, our Support Group in its various forms has raised in excess of £44,505.02 for the Society, and its work for vulnerable children and young people in England and Wales.
The Support Group works very closely with the Society and its Relationship Manager for the Dioceses of Chichester, Guildford, Portsmouth and Winchester. For more information about the work of
the Children's Society please take a look at the website. www.childrenssociety.org.uk. Charity Number 221124.
