Charity Abseil!

As many of you already know, on the 24th June I will be abseiling down the UK’s highest freefall abseil tower, the ArcelorMittal Orbit in London in aid of The Pituitary Foundation, a charity I have been supporting since my Pituitary Tumour when I was 16. The charity provides much needed support for those affected by Pituitary disorders and their loved ones including support groups, information leaflets, an advice line and awareness seminars.

I want to thank everyone who has already donated so far for their generosity and remind people that there is still time to donate should they wish to do so. Sponsorship forms can be found at the back of both churches and you can also sponsor me through my online justgiving page: www.justgiving.com and searching for Jo Hutchinson. Any donation would be gratefully received.

Thank you, God bless,

Jo Hutchinson

Come and pray Thy Kingdom Come at Chichester Cathedral

Chichester Cathedral is creating beautiful, interactive ways to pray in response to Archbishop Justin Welby calling the Church to pray in the days leading up to Pentecost. Themed around the Lord’s Prayer, pause to pray for your family and friends in the tranquil garden, praise God’s holy name in the majestic Throne Room. Suitable for people of all ages, there will be space to reflect on your life and pray creatively for people in need throughout the world as we come together to pray Thy Kingdome Come.
To celebrate our praying together Stu Barbour and his band from the Point Church will be leading worship in the Cathedral on Saturday 3rd June at 7.30 pm.
Thy Kingdom Come will be situated in the North Transept and is open from Wednesday 31st May until Saturday 3rd June between 8.30am – 7.00pm.

James’ 4 points about ‘Giving’

1. Thank you to everybody who so generously gives to our church. it is massively appreciated.
2. If you don’t yet give please do seriously consider it. Do please speak to either of our Treasurers about it. Mike Freeman at St.Stephen’s: st.stephenspo20@gmail.com or Mike Waite at St.Leodegar’s: mikewaite169@gmail.com
3. If you do give but don’t use the Parish Giving Scheme please would you give that some careful consideration. Please do speak to either Treasurer or to Arthur Broadhurst: 606757. (you can still use the PGS even if not a tax payer).
4. If you do already give please just take a moment to review what you do give. I know for myself that I can set up Direct Debits and then just leave them running when actually raising them by a few £’s every couple of years in keeping with rising costs is important.
Any further questions/queries do feel free to contact me on 782003.
