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.
FSW Newsletter - May, 2021
With the changing of the clocks a couple of weeks ago comes the real start of spring, the first steps out of lockdown and the start of a new year for FSW. A real chance for new beginnings, and a lot of positivity and hope for the coming months.
We have recently held our first family activity day for over a year (details below), and are busy planning for many events over the coming months. It is fantastic to be facing the future in a good position and knowing that we have the support of so many individuals, churches and groups throughout Sussex. We really could not have got through the last year without you.
I hope that it won't be too much longer before we are finally able to meet with you all again in person, and look forward to sharing even more of our news with you then.
With many thanks for your continued support.
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.
