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.

Holy Communion Service – 18 October 2020

Holy Communion was led by Stephen Everard this morning. It is the Feast Day of St Luke today, and Stephen incorporated this into his sermon.
It was so good to see everyone, albeit behind a visor or mask. We are a lovely church family

The service has been recorded and can be viewed on this YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLISQfaOG4ju-7BeJxvHIQsdtBXDx05XLx

The Feast Day of St Luke – 18 October 2020

.

St Luke, author of the third Gospel and of the Acts of the Apostles, was a native of Antioch in Syria and a physician, and one of the early converts from paganism. He accompanied Paul on a considerable part of his missionary journey. He was also his companion while in prison at Rome on two different occasions. His account of these events, contained in the Acts, is firsthand history.

St Luke is the patron saint of artists, physicians, bachelors, surgeons, students and butchers.

Food bank and Stone Pillow

The food bank collection basket is still available at the back of St Stephen’s Church!

If you wanted to make a contribution but are not able to come to church at the moment, there will be a box put in the church porch, where you can leave yours gifts.

We are also collecting for Stone Pillow as well. Please support this outreach!

Anti-Slavery Day is Sunday 18th October

Anti-Slavery Day is Sunday 18th October. On this link you can find prayer resources and articles/videos about Myths and Facts about Modern Slavery, including real examples of Modern Slavery happening in Sussex in 2020! https://togetherinsussex.org.uk/whats-new

Together in Sussex is partnering with the Mothers Union to raise awareness and we are asking one person to tell another person about Modern Slavery. Modern Slavery is largely invisible unless you know what you are looking for. So the more people who are able to spot the signs of  Modern Slavery the greater chance we have to respond and report it.
