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.
The implications of the current lockdown for our churches will be discussed at the PCC meeting on Monday, where a decision will be taken about the best way forward for the safety of our church family. Unfortunately the All Age Service this Sunday 9 January 2021 has been cancelled.
Please remember that you need to book your place:for St Stephen’s with Lynn Mears (537190) and for St Leodegar’s with Joan Duberley (787801). Don’t assume that you will have a space because you have been coming to church regularly – you still need to book!
If you are not able to attend for any reason, PLEASE let Lynn or Joan know! They keep a waiting list for services that have been fully booked, and can let people know they have a place if you cancel your booking in time.
We are continuing to record our Holy Communion Services.
We are legally allowed to continue with our church services while we are in Tier 4. The Leadership Team is aware that some people feel that their safety and health could be at risk in church, in the light of the new, fast spreading virus. For others, worshipping in church with fellow church members is very important for their spiritual or mental wellbeing..
The Leadership Team is meeting on 6 January 2021 to consider whether it is wise to continue meeting or whether services should be suspended for the time being.
We shall keep you informed if there are any changes to church services via email or social media
