Message from Sue Gilbert:

Huge thanks to everyone who has helped to fill my car boot with food and toiletry donations for Easter Team.


They are immensely thankful and report that the need is increasing as more and more people are struggling to make ends meet.


All non-perishable items are gratefully received and in particular at the moment, tinned meat meals e.g. meatballs in sauce, which can be prepared in a microwave (out of the tin of course!). But truly everything is welcome.


I am delivering fortnightly on a Friday and am happy to collect donations from your door or you can drop off at my house – contact 


Thank you so much 😊



Sue Edgson and Chris Bell, as the parish representatives, together with the Bishop of Chichester and the acting Archdeacon of Horsham recently met by ZOOM with a candidate for the post of Rector of



We are delighted to be able to tell you that following the unanimous decision of the panel the Bishop is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Christine Spencer as our new Rector designate.


Christine is currently priest-in charge of St. Richard’s, Three Bridges who are also being advised of Christine’s new appointment today. 


Because of the Coronavirus restrictions and the fact that the Rectory is currently occupied we are unable to say when Christine will be Licenced and Inducted into the parish. We will of course advise you as soon as those plans are made.


Christine has written a short biography of herself which is on the web site. Please pray for Christine and for the congregation at St. Richard’s.
