Welcome to St Stephen’s Church

Featured

Welcome and thank you for visiting St Stephen’s Church, North Mundham.  St Stephen’s is part of a strong and vibrant community in the Parish of North Mundham, south of Chichester.  This is a popular church, with a large congregation, attracting people from near and far.

The services during the month offer an opportunity to praise God in different ways.  The Church runs a Sunday School on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.  We welcome children to all our services with a monthly All Age Service.  Children and youth groups meet in the Village Hall for games, singing, activities and Christian teaching.

St Stephen’s and St Leodegar’s churches work closely together as a united benefice and are ministered by Revd. James Russell.

Soul Survivor 2019

Soul Survivor 2019 will soon be upon us, and we will be taking a group to The East of England Show Ground from Saturday 17th August to Wednesday 21st August. Soul Survivor is a great event, designed for 12-18 year olds, packed full of great worship, thought-provoking seminars and loads of fun activities throughout the day (and into the night). The cost will be £123. If you are interested and want to find out more, please contact Jane and Stephen Everard on 01243 375858 / 0797282227 / jsne@talktalk.net.

Day of Prayer

We are planning to hold a Day of Prayer on Saturday 27 July.  We realise that this is in the school holidays but it has been difficult to find a Saturday when the church is free.  We plan to have a half day praying in each church followed by a short service late afternoon to draw it together.  The aim of the Day is to pray for the future of our churches as we enter an inter-regnum and to pray for our future minister, whoever that might be.

There will be signing up sheets at the back of the churches; if you are able please sign up for an hour’s slot.  We need two people for each hour.  There will be more information available nearer the time.  Please come and join us in prayer.

War Memorial and Roll of Honour Dedication Service

Thanks to all involved in the special War Memorial and Roll of Honour Dedication Service held at St Leodegar’s Church.  The efforts put into the preparation, organisation and funding of the project more than met my hopes and expectations.  It was also a pleasure working closely with the Chair of the Hunston Parish Council and relatives of those recognised on the War Memorial Plaques.

St Stephen’s Church Electoral Roll

The St Stephen’s Church Electoral Roll has been checked again and as there have been some removals a new list has been produced and is shown in the South Door Porch.  Those who should be on the list are asked to check for their own entry and for any corrections which are necessary.  Additions would be welcome.

An additional memorial stone for Hunston

To recognise others who fell in WW1 from Hunston, a new memorial stone is being unveiled at Hunston church. This is funded by the Royal British Legion and supported by the Parish Council and a dedication of the new stone is to take place at 12pm on 30 June at St Leodegars led by Victor.  Representatives from Royal British Legion will attend and it is hoped that members of the Free School cadet corps will also be present.
