St. Stephen’s Church Weekly News

Due to personal circumstances which are making it difficult for me at the moment to maintain a weekly update of activities in St Stephen’s Church, I am stopping the weekly emails until further notice. I apologise for any inconvenience caused by this and hope to be able to take up this regular update again when I am able to.

Prayer Vigil for Missionaries

You are invited to pray for the work of missionary societies, in particular for CMS and USPG, at a prayer vigil in the Cathedral’s Lady Chapel on Thursday 30th November, 11:00 – 3:30. There is always plenty of material available to pick up and guide your prayers. You are very welcome to come at any time during the day and stay for just a few minutes.

Remembering our loved ones

We’d like to invite anyone who has suffered bereavement to a special service remembering our loved ones.

Sunday November 19th in St Stephen’s Church, North Mundham at 4pm. Followed by refreshments.

The service will follow a simple format of music, readings, prayers and reflection. We will create an opportunity for your loved ones to be remembered by name and a candle lit in their memory.

If you would like to come, please contact James (russell.j760@gmail.com or 782003), Tineke Zwinkels (willow2@madestein.co.uk or 536184) or Mary Smith (779115).

Reading and leading intercessions at St Stephen’s

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to read the lesson or lead intercessions.  I have put the sign-up sheets at the back of the church again for anyone who has been thinking about it but has been side-tracked en route to putting pen to paper!

Guide-lines for leading intercessions are now available, also at the back of the church.  Please take one if you think it would be helpful.
Thank you,    Katrina Walker

Church Calendar

Due to the church now being used more for a variety of events and meetings, it is essential that if you wish to use St Stephen`s we would ask that you check the availability on the calendar situated in the porch first. If it is free then please write the event and time on the calendar.
