Breaking News:


NEXT SUNDAY  - 26th March

8:00 am - Holy Communion - St George's

9:30 for 10:00 am - Breakfast Church - St Michael's

4:00 pm - Sung Evensong - St George's

SPREAD THE NEWS – Worship@11 every second Sunday of the Month in St. Michael’s – a new style of worship.

Lent Lunches, in aid of Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice begin on 23rd February at 12:30 pm and will continue every Thursday lunchtime through Lent. Cost, £3.

Lent Groups are now running - These work in a similar way to the course of the Lord's Prayer we ran at both house groups last autumn. The course for Lent is called "Unanswered Prayer", and follows on from the very well-received Prayer Course we did in Advent. It is held on two evenings every week. Wednesday evenings at 8:00 pm in the Parish Room at St Michael's (except for the second Wednesday of March when it will be in the Methodist Hall). Thursday evenings 8:00 pm at Hydon, High Street, Partridge Green, hosted by Mike and Claire Phillips. All are welcome to either evening session.

Children's Church at St Michael's - We have been encouraging more children to attend church and the Super Sunday provision on fourth Sundays is going well. We are also welcoming a small number of children every week now and in order for this to continue and flourish we need some more people to help. If you would like to help, perhaps once a month, especially during Worship@11, please do contact Alison.

Save the date! St George's Weekend Countryside Festival - 22/23 April - More details to follow, but if you think you would be able to help on either day, please contact Susie Jacobsen (01403 711763) or Dave Tidey (01403 864762).

Access Ramp - We are planning to install an access ramp at St Michael's. Please click here to see a sketch of the design.

Horsham Matters Food Bank - The food bank started 2022 by providing food for 347 people and ended it by feeding 1,466 adults and children in December – an illustration of how tough things have got for many. January 2023 has continued in the same vein with 788 people needing support with food. More and more of those needing help are working people, finding their salaries no longer cover both bills and food, and our support in household budgeting, debt advice and benefits checks is proving a valuable service to those now in crisis.

If you can spare an item or two, the foodbank is currently short of:

Jam, Marmite, Chocolate Spread and Peanut Butter, Ketchup, Brown Sauce and Mayonnaise, Long-Life Sponge Puddings, Laundry Detergent, Deodorant
